Webinar: Accessibility and Inclusion in K-12 Computer Science Education

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

Excerpt from the Great Lakes ADA Center:  Computer science (CS) is increasingly becoming part of the mainstream K-12 instructional experience. As more students are exposed to CS instruction, it is imperative that school districts, curriculum developers, and instructional designers consider the needs of all students, including those with disabilities. In this webinar, we will share national initiatives focused on inclusion and accessibility… We will also share accessibility and inclusion challenges faced by the CS education community and necessary steps that we must take to continue moving in a positive direction towards more inclusive, accessible CS education experiences.

 Webinar: The Intersection of ADA, FMLA, and Workers' Compensation

This is a free webinar offered through the Mid-Atlantic ADA Center, one of the 10 Regional ADA Centers in the ADA National Network that provides training and technical assistance on the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Excerpt from the Mid-Atlantic ADA Center:  Figuring out how to navigate and comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act can be difficult in itself. So when Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) or Workers’ Compensation are also involved, confusion about how each law applies is understandable. As cases increase in complexity with more than one law to apply, it’s important we understand the obligations under each and ensure we have effective processes in place to manage them. After a deep review of the six areas of intersection, we will go through an exercise to see how the intersections apply in real scenarios. To help employers effectively implement each law, we will explore best practices to set up employers and employees for success.

Webinar:  Effective Communication in Criminal Justice

This is a free webinar offered through the Mid-Atlantic ADA Center, one of the 10 Regional ADA Centers in the ADA National Network  that  provides training and technical assistance on the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Excerpt from the Mid-Atlantic ADA Center: Join us for the second of a 3 part series, ADA Lessons from Case Law, where we will examine recent court cases as they pertain to different areas of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). A cornerstone of the ADA is the requirement that covered entities provide effective communication. The ADA's effective communication obligation raises interesting questions for law enforcement and corrections given the unique issues that arise in the criminal justice context. Through an in-depth review of recent court cases and settlement agreements, participants will learn what courts are saying about providing effective communication in the criminal justice system, including best practices and practical strategies. The presenter is Rachel M. Weisberg, Staff Attorney for Equip for Equality.

Part 1: Interactive Process: Lessons from Case Law is available.
