What You Missed Last Month: ADA Trainings in September

What you missed in September: Archived Webinars

Last month, there were several training opportunities on the ADA and related topics. Here are some highlights. Each archive includes the presenter(s) materials in multiple formats as well as a link to the recording of the webinar session.

September ADA Radio Show: Emerging Transportation Options and the ADA

ADA Live! (WADA) is a free monthly show broadcast nationally on the Internet hosted by the Southeast ADA Center.

From the Southeast ADA Center: Transportation is covered under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) in Title II (public, state and local governments) and also Title III (private businesses). However, what about new and emerging transportation services? What about third party vendors, who are largely considered private providers such as Uber, Lyft, and others? What about the future potential of self-driving vehicles? How will these services and new technologies be made accessible for people with disabilities?

On this episode of ADA Live!, guests Paul Simmons with the Rocky Mountain ADA Center and Geoff Ames with Meeting the Challenge, will discuss emerging transportation trends, the impact on people with disabilities, and the role of the ADA.


Webinar: Evaluating Websites for Accessibility

This is a free webinar offered through a collaboration of the U.S. Access Board, the Great Lakes ADA Center, and the ADA National Network.

From the Great Lakes ADA Center: This introductory webinar will cover online barriers to accessibility and explain how to check that web content is accessible to all visitors using standards that apply to the federal government under Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act. As part of this webinar, the presenters will review key components of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines issued by the World Wide Web Consortium, which are incorporated by reference in the Section 508 standards.

Presenters will also discuss common problems and easy solutions and share practical tips for improving website accessibility. Attendees can pose questions in advance or during the live webinar. This session is intended for both a general audience as well as website designers and content managers who are experienced, but new to accessibility.


ADA Audio Conference: The Fair Housing Act and Persons with Disabilities

The ADA Audio Conference is coordinated by the Great Lakes ADA Center on behalf of the ADA National Network.

From the Great Lakes ADA Center:  The Fair Housing Act ((FHA) prohibits discrimination in the sale, rental, and financing of dwellings and in other housing-related activities based on disability, as well as other protected classes. The FHA applies to a wide range of persons and entities, including public housing agencies, property owners, landlords, housing managers, real estate agents, brokerage service agencies, and banks. Join us for this informative session as Amanda Motyka from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) will discuss protections under the FHA for persons with disabilities. What are reasonable accommodations and modifications under the law? Join us to get answers to these questions. There will be time for participants to ask questions of the speaker.


Webinar: Evaluating & Managing Accessibility in 3rd Party Web Content

This is a free webinar offered through the Great Lakes ADA Center on behalf of the ADA National Network.

From the Great Lakes ADA Center: These days web sites are rarely built entirely from HTML under your control. In this age of APIs, embedded widgets and iframes it is all too easy to render an otherwise fully accessible page both inaccessible and completely unusable just by adding a single line of JavaScript. In this session we’ll discuss all aspect of identifying 3rd party tools and app, assessing your risk and devise strategies for solving the 3rd party problems.


Webinar: Review of Case Law on the ADA and Health Care

This is a free webinar offered through the Healthcare and the ADA-Inclusion of Persons with Disabilities Webinar Series, hosted by the Pacific ADA Center.

Excerpt from the Pacific ADA Center: Access to health care is critical for people with disabilities, but often many barriers exist. This webinar will review how litigation has impacted the ADA's application to health care. Topics will include accessible medical facilities and equipment, effective communication, and service animals in health care facilities. In addition to reviewing specific court decisions and settlement agreements, this session will also identify trends and potential issues for future ADA health care-related litigation.
