Complying with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) can sometimes be tricky business. We want to do right by our students, staff, faculty and visitors with disabilities. Yet, we may not always think through a situation to make sure accessibility issues are considered.
The ADA Case Studies Binder can help get students and staff in the accessibility mindset. By exploring these 40 case studies, along with comprehensive discussion questions, users will be more conscious of compliance issues and more sensitive to the needs of others. And, as a result, your campus will be more welcoming and comfortable for community members with disabilities.
Each of these 40 ADA-specific case studies includes comprehensive discussion questions to help stimulate positive and proactive discussion about how to best serve campus community members with disabilities.
Some of the topics covered include:
- Making events accessible
- Emergencies and people with disabilities
- Service and assistance animals
- Conference housing concerns
- Assistive technology
- Academic accommodations
- Autism and Asperger Syndrome
- Food allergies
- Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
