Announcing Best Practice Webinar Series Nine

Salome Heyward, one of the leading legal experts in the field, will continue offering our popular Best Practice Series. In Series 9, we will discuss significant OCR and DOJ pronouncements regarding the policies and procedures colleges and universities should have in place to implement their ADA/Section 504 compliance strategies, measures and programs.

Webinar 1: The Policies & Procedures Checklist (November 7, 2017 (1:30 EST)) – The first thing that the administrators are expected to be able to produce when a complaint is filed is the policies and procedures adopted and implemented in the relevant area(s). The key or necessary elements of acceptable policies and procedures have been identified in a number of significant compliance areas.

Webinar 2: Facility and Program Accessibility (February 6, 2018 (1:30 EST)) – College and universities are obligated to ensure that programs, services and activities offered are readily accessible to individuals with disabilities. There are a number of recent cases that reflect that there is either a lack of understanding concerning the regulatory standards or a lack of willingness to ensure that individuals with disabilities are provided equal access.

Webinar 3: On the Couch (April 3, 2018 (1:30 EST)) – These are the issues and problems that make us reach for medication and/or seek therapy services. No matter how much we talk about them we still remain confused or frustrated.

For a listing of the topics to be discussed for each webinar please consult the Webinar page (3) on this site.
