Keeping up to date with ever-evolving ADA rules and regulations can be overwhelming at times.
How can you ensure that you are in compliance with both the spirit, as well as the letter, of the law when it comes to this critical legislation?
Join us on May 9, 2023 as we examine the ADA compliance process from start to finish, with a specific focus on best practices in the following areas:
- Ensuring your campus is inclusive to those students with a wide array of disabilities
- Evaluating a wide range of policies and practices for compliance
- Auditing your distance learning courses for accessibility, as well as ALL electronic communication (email, websites, in-class presentations, etc.)
- Coordinating disability awareness training for faculty and staff
- Addressing the needs of your faculty and staff with regards to accommodation requests
- Assessing architectural barriers for individuals with disabilities
It seems like every day we learn of new legal settlements or resolution agreements between universities and the federal government due to alleged disability discrimination or failure to properly accommodate an individual with a disability. This concern can cause many disability professionals to feel like they are constantly “looking over their shoulders” and wondering when or if their campus will be next.
You’ll leave the webinar prepared to accurately assess your current policies and procedures to help you meet the needs of individuals with disabilities on your campus – and ensure you are compliant with federal legislation.
You will gain crucial, actionable takeaways that will help you:
- Review and understand “hot topics” in disability management on today’s campus – explore changes on the horizon with respect to ADA and Section 504 compliance and how they relate to your campus so you can ensure you remain in compliance.
- Explore how “reasonable accommodations” continue to evolve in light of new realities and what your faculty and administrators need to know – avoid complaints and potential legal ramifications.
- Achieve a working knowledge of the audit process, including practical tips for surviving intense scrutiny.
- Appreciate the importance of self-assessment and how it contributes to achieving institutional and individual goals and objectives related to compliance – create an assessment plan for measuring success or opportunities within your disability office.
- Articulate a plan for remaining compliant with ever-changing ADA and Section 504 rules and regulations – create a disability services liaison network or accessibility champion network to assist in the campus-wide implementation of accommodations.
