Series 10: Webinar 1

BEYOND BASIC ACADEMIC ADJUSTMENTS... IT'S NOT JUST ABOUT NOTETAKERS AND EXTENDED TIME

Tuesday, November 13, 2018 (Replay Available)

  • A student contests disciplinary sanctions based upon a diagnoses post-traumatic stress condition;
  • Faculty members complain that an approved accommodation that permits a student with a spectrum disorder to leave class when necessary would be disruptive and violate attendance requirements;
  • Administrators of a clinical program argue that a student who is HIV positive must be dismissed as a health and safety risk, and
  • A medical student argues that should be permitted to retake failed courses because her performance was negatively impacted by her treatment for drug addition associated with pain medication prescribed following a car accident.

Students with psychiatric disabilities, spectrum disorders, contagious diseases and addiction disorders have conditions that present difficult challenges for colleges and universities. While these conditions certainly can and do impact academic performance, in many instances, they require that institutions adopt different approaches to both ensure that students are qualified and are provided meaningful access to educational programs and services. During this webinar we will discuss important compliance imperatives regarding:

  • Fashioning unique accommodations
  • Determining whether students are qualified to participate
  • Making health and safety determinations
  • Controlling disruptive behavior
  • Responding to emergencies
