Free ADA Audio Conference: Ask the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC)
From the Great Lakes ADA Center: Do you have a burning question regarding the employment provisions of the ADA? Is there an accommodation issue that you are confused about? Do you have questions about what constitutes a disability under the ADA? Are you clear about what constitutes “leave” as an accommodation under the ADA? What are the guidelines regarding the presence of companion animals and service animals in the workplace? Join us for this popular session where you will have an opportunity to ask your question. We will be accepting questions in advance of the session. The first 25 questions submitted will be given priority and then we will take questions “live” during the session as well.
Free Webinar Archive: ADA in the K-12 Setting (this session included a new Legal Brief on K-12 and the ADA)
From the Great Lakes ADA Center: Often when people think about disability rights in the K-12 setting, they focus on special education rights under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). While that law provides critical legal protections for students with disabilities and their families, the ADA also applies to this setting. In this webinar, the rights and responsibilities of students with disabilities, family members, and school personnel under the ADA will be discussed. The webinar will also focus on the latest case law interpretations, including the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision on the interplay between the ADA and the IDEA. You’ll want to attend this session to make sure you get an “A” on your ADA report card.
Free Webinar Archive: Using WordPress for Accessible Web Development
From the Great Lakes ADA Center: Joe Dolson has been doing web development and consulting with a focus on accessibility since 2004, when he founded his business. Starting in 2008, he began to develop WordPress plug-ins. This rose out of a need for software that could serve key web site needs in a manner that was accessible for users (both on the admin and public side) who had disabilities. He focuses less on the design process, and develops custom applications that will be used as a portion of a larger accessible application. Join us for an in-depth look into taking full advantage of WordPress accessibility features and plug-ins.
