ADA In Higher Education: What students and administrators need to know
In the postsecondary education setting, students with disabilities, faculty, and administration have rights and responsibilities under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and the ADA. For students, their rights have changed since leaving the high school setting and they are solely responsible for advocating for reasonable accommodations. For faculty and administration, they must insure equal access and opportunity to students with disabilities on campus, in campus housing, in the classroom, and online. This webinar will discuss the requirements of the ADA and Section 504, reasonable accommodation and essential course requirements in the academic setting, and some of the common questions and challenges heard by the Northeast ADA Center. This presentation is intended for a broad audience of students with disabilities, faculty, and administrators.
