Education and Civil Rights for Persons with Disabilities During the COVID-19 Pandemic by Dr. Sabrina Harris Taylor, PhD, CRC, CVRP, CWIP 1-2:30pm October 15th, 2020 via Zoom
Due to the COVID-10 pandemic, the shift from face-to-face learning to online learning has significantly impacted students with disabilities within the K-12, college and university systems. Students with disabilities are accustomed to face-to-face interactions from their instructors, support staff and counselors. Many students and parents do not feel their needs are adequately met in a remote online learning environment. In this webinar, you will learn about laws and legislation in place to protect students with disabilities in an education setting and best practices for success in an online learning environment. Attendees will 1) identify laws and legislation to protect students with disabilities 2) develop knowledge of online learning tools that can assist individuals with various disabilities and 3) utilize resources to support persons with disabilities in an online learning environment.
