Avoid Lawsuits, Reasonable Accommodations Confusion and Non-Compliance
Safeguard the diverse educational accommodation needs of your students both on and off campus to avoid investigations, student complaints and costly litigation.
Join us on Thursday, January 11, 2024, as we examine the legal responsibilities of educational institutions with respect to internships and practicums and discuss ways to develop partnerships with internship/practicum site coordinators to ensure compliance.
Our expert presenter – a former OCR attorney – will share issues arising with respect to internships and practicums, how to determine reasonable accommodations, and insight into the updated content about the unique ADA concerns involving internship/practicum completion via remote work.
Increase your institution’s acumen regarding internship and practicums and prevent any foreseeable discrimination or non-compliance complaints.
Gain crucial, actionable takeaways that will help you:
- Understand the process for determining reasonable accommodations for your students in their internship and practicum settings so you can adequately vet and meet valid requests.
- Identify common issues that arise with internships and practicums including disability accommodations at the site, discrimination surrounding dress codes and grooming codes, and harassment.
- Support diverse learners in their academic pursuits and skill development.
- Educate faculty, staff and internship/practicum coordinators with the amended ADA guidelines involving internship/practicum completion via remote work to ensure everyone remains in compliance.
- Meet your compliance obligations despite the third-party nature of placement sites.
- Train your students to self-advocate for their needs to prevent academic failure and personal frustration.
