Accommodating Applicants And Students With Disabilities In General And In The COVID-19 Climate

January 5, 2021 - 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM ET - SHPC Webinar

In this webinar, Sara Goldsmith Schwartz will outline the best practices for interacting with students and applicants who may be disabled. Sara will use real-world scenarios to demonstrate the practical impact of the law on the admissions process, the classroom experience and beyond.

Sara will explore many questions, including: What constitutes a disability under the law? What are the best practices in admissions documentation? When is the school required to accommodate students? What are the limitations on the required accommodations? For example, does the school have to accommodate a student who is disruptive in the classroom?

Topics will include:

• An Overview Of The Americans with Disabilities Act (the “ADA”)
• The ADA’s Application To Independent Schools
• Reasonable Accommodation Requirements Of The ADA
• Best Practices For Schools To Ensure Compliance With The ADA
• How To Know If Section 504 Applies
