Many people with disabilities miss out on opportunities to equal access because we do not know our rights under The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The ADA is a law to protect against discrimination on the basis of disability. Learn more about your rights as a person with a disability!
Please join Rosy Tellez of Disability Rights California who will educate us on the Americans with Disability Act.
This webinar will cover the History of the ADA, The Five Titles of the ADA and how you can benefit from your right to Reasonable Accommodations. We will walk you through how accommodations are essential to your personal growth in education, employment, services and programs.
Together we will explore the following:
- The History of the ADA
- What is the Americans with Disabilities Act?
- What are your rights under the ADA?
- How can you benefit from Reasonable Accommodations?
Please note that an OCASG Liability Waiver is required. If you have not signed one yet, upon registering, an email will be sent to you with information. Upon confirmation of an executed Liability Waiver, you will be sent the login information.About the Speaker
