Reach Restriction (1A)
Students may have difficulty reaching for objects because they are unable to use their arms or hands, have a restricted reach, or use a wheelchair. The degree of restriction varies; a student who is extremely short may have difficulty reaching materials on an average-height lab table while a student who uses a wheelchair may only require assistance with objects on high shelves or cabinets.
