    • A height-adjustable table for each type of workstation in your lab;
    • Wrist and forearm rests;
    • A trackball;
    • Software that modifies responses to keyboard input such as sticky keys, repeat rate, and keystroke delay (that may be available in the operating system);
    • Software to enlarge screen images (that may be available in the operating system), along with a large monitor;
    • Large-print keytop labels
  • Additionally, ensure than any web resources you provide to students adhere to accessibility standards or guidelines adopted by the lab.
