Straight Talk About the ADA for Special Educators and Employment Specialists

Thursday, April 22, 2021
2:00 P.M. to 3:30 P.M. EST

Cost: $Varies

Format: Webinar

Where: Online/Web-based

Sponsored By:

TransCen, Inc.


Though the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was passed over 30 years ago, many young adults with disabilities do not understand the law and how it affects them. Special Education personnel and employment specialists are in an ideal position to provide critical information on the ADA to youth transitioning to postsecondary life. Join TransCen’s Laura Owens and Ann Deschamps for this 90-minute session to learn the answers to these questions and more:

  • What do young people with disabilities need to know about reasonable accommodation?
  • What are the differences between the ADA, IDEA and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and how do these differences effect the transition process?
  • Is customized employment considered a reasonable accommodation?
  • When is the best time for a person to talk to their employer about their disability?
  • What happens when a young adult doesn’t want to talk about his/her disability to the employer?
  • What do parents of transitioning youth need to know about the ADA?
