The Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1974, place specific legal obligations on post-secondary institutions for ensuring the reasonable accommodation of disabled students. Institutions are expected to provide auxiliary aids and accommodations for the equal participation of disabled students in education and extra-curricular activities.
In this webinar, expert speaker and educational legal consultant, James P. Evans will discuss the obligations of post secondary institutions to disabled students as well as the limitations that apply to the modifications to be provided in various academic, housing and extra-curricular spheres. James will provide you with expert insights and proactive strategies for compliance under ADA and Section 504.
Knowing what your obligations are and to whom the law applies is critical for protecting your institution from potential civil litigation and liabilities. This session will help you remain compliant with regulations and will help you provide a positive learning experience to disabled students at your institution.
