Training Overview

Apply the ADA to your institution. Understand the legal foundation and today’s interpretation.

As colleges and universities seek a return to normalcy in August and September, students with disabilities will present a special challenge for administrators and faculty. Staff members who have been working remotely for nearly three semesters will have their own particular issues where returning to campus is concerned.

You need to know the foundation of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and discover its most recent interpretation through regulations and case law. This law has many implications for how you must handle the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, requiring you to update policies and procedures at your institution.
