When:  Feb 7, 2019 from 3:00 PM to 4:30 PM (ET)

Presented by: Julie Ballinger, M.A., Southwest ADA Center and Melanie Thornton, M.A., University of Arkansas – Partners for Inclusive Communities

Are you interested in an effective way to bring awareness to professors and instructors regarding how a student’s ADA disability rights work, including what should be considered and implemented in their particular classrooms to remove educational barriers? Join us to learn about effective approaches and to receive the Southwest ADA Center’s guide that will give disability resource professionals an organized straightforward tool to use when engaging, educating, and resolving issues with faculty regarding academic, disability-related accommodations. This analytical tool can be especially effective where the professional is seeking a better method to work with instructors, including resolving instructors’ hesitations, resistance, or down-right denial of accommodations in their classrooms. Those working on college campuses that employ a high number of adjuncts will also find this tool particularly helpful.
