The ADA Audio Conference Series provides in-depth information on the Americans with
Disabilities Act (ADA). This program is designed to enhance an individual's existing
knowledge base or facilitate continued learning regarding regulations and trends
under the ADA.
Participating in the Audio Conference can support professional development of an
individual, an entire department or an entire agency for less cost than sending
a staff member to a comparable training event. We encourage entities to invite individuals,
co-workers, or community partners, to participate at your site and increase participation.
Site coordinators can use the time following each session to debrief on the subject,
facilitate discussion of their agency's ADA compliance program and dialogue "where
do we go from here?" to improve the agency's response to the ADA.
Entities hosting a site for several participants who are using only one service
such as the telephone or streaming audio may offer a second format as an accommodation
to the group's needs. We realize that there is a chance that someone will need the
accommodation of real-time captioning to the telephone format to be able to participate
at that site. We will honor the request for an accommodation in that situation and
provide access to the real-time captioning for that site at no charge, given that
they have already registered for one of the other services (telephone or streaming
audio) and made the request for the accommodation. You can access the Reasonable
Accommodation form from your Account Manager.
