While some rights and protections guaranteed by these laws terminate when a student with disabilities graduates high school, post-secondary institutions and higher education entrance testing services (ETS, GRE, LSAT) have certain obligations under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and the American’s with Disabilities Act to provide reasonable accommodations for students with disabilities.
Students with disabilities are entitled to accommodations designed to “level the playing field.” Post-secondary institutions and testing services must therefore provide appropriate accommodations to ensure they are not discriminating based on a student’s disability. Accommodations may include extra time on tests, a reader, large print text, note takers and other supports.
This webinar will provide an overview of things caregivers should be aware of as their loved one with autism enters different stages of life.
