Reasonable Accommodations in Colleges and Universities (8-23-17)

ADA Infocus Webinar SeriesPresented by TransCen, Inc. and the Mid-Atlantic ADA Center

Accommodations in higher education can be very different from K-12 and workplace accommodations.  Join us as we explore an overview of what reasonable accommodations look like in higher education and scenarios of a variety of accommodation requests.  In addition, we will go over the Association on Higher Education and Disability (AHEAD) documentation guidance and talk about reasonable documentation in higher education.

Presenters: Tessa DiPerri, University of Maryland, College Park and Crystal Tenan, Towson State University.
