September 25: The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Employee Protections: What you need to know
Whether you are seeking a job or are currently employed, this webinar is for you. The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) is a federal civil rights law designed to prevent discrimination and enable individuals with disabilities to participate fully in all aspects of society. Title I of the ADA provides individuals with disabilities an equal opportunity to work. This webinar will provide listeners an understanding of an employee’s rights under the ADA.
The following webinar is designed for caretakers of children with special health care needs. It would provide a general overview of the importance of daily mouth care and how you as caregivers can help. When your child has good oral health, it will improve the quality of both of your lives. Children with special health care needs are at great risk for dental diseases, and many times they do not know how or are unable to care for their teeth. Caregivers can play a very important role in helping a person have good health, comfort, and hygiene.
November 20: Meet & Greet with NJ's Ombudsman For Individuals with Intellectual or Developmental Disabilities and Their Families
Join us for an online Meet & Greet with Paul Aronsohn, NJ's Ombudsman for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families. Mr. Aronsohn will provide an overview of the Ombudsman position and how he can help you and your loved one with an intellectual and developmental disability. There will be a live Q&A at the conclusion of his presentation.
Many parents know that special needs trusts play a critical role in planning for the financial future of their child with disabilities. If a person with disabilities has too much money in his own name he will become ineligible for important government benefits, like SSI and Medicaid. A special needs trust can help to avoid this problem because assets that are held in a properly drafted special needs trust are not considered when determining eligibility for these and other “means-tested” government benefits.
March 24: Empowering Children & Adults with Developmental Disabilities to Discuss their Support Needs
Talking openly with your loved one about his or her disability in an positive way is so important. The way in which you approach this subject will have a lasting impact on your loved one’s self-confidence and comfort level discussing the topic. This webinar will provide a framework for families to discuss their loved one’s abilities with them, as well as explore ways for children and adults with disabilities to learn how to communicate their support needs with staff, teachers, and employers.
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities in several areas, including employment, transportation, public accommodations, communications and access to state and local government programs and services. This webinar will provide an overview the ADA, how it relates to everyday life and what to do if you feel you or your loved ones right are being violated under the ADA.
