Policies and Procedures to Maintain Fair and Accessible Processes and Ensure Compliance

The mental health challenges students are facing today place a high demand on staff and professionals across campus, including disability service professionals. Determining accommodations can be an overwhelming and time-consuming process, as campus staff, faculty and administrators strive to make education accessible and equitable for all students.

Our expert presenter reviews the nuanced considerations related to mental health services and supports; when and how ADA/504 applies to psychological/psychiatric conditions; the importance of documentation; and the need for consistent processes and procedures to avoid noncompliance.

Topics Covered

Participants will gain insight and actionable takeaways to:

  • Explore nuanced considerations related to mental health services and ADA accommodations to best support your students’ academic and social needs.
  • Identify integral information to assist with accommodation determinations and/or other campus supports to overcome access barriers.
  • Analyze whether an accommodation contraindicates the disability and can potentially have a negative effect on a student’s well-being or health.
  • Develop campus wide consistent processes and procedures to address accommodation determinations and implementations.
  • Build campus partnerships between disability offices and the larger campus community to educate on inclusive practices to support students to ensure inclusion and accessibility for all students.
  • Develop or improve programs to discuss mental health issues with faculty and staff – ensure that health of the mind is part of your institution’s mission so everyone can work together in ensuring the overall health and well-being of your students.
