students with disabilities

This virtual presentation, part of the Parent to Parent NYC Special Education Task Force Lunch & Learn Series, will provide information on the rights of students with disabilities under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act (Section 504). Both offer helpful protections and options for students with a wide range of disabilities. When used alone, or in combination with the IDEA, they can help students receive an accessible and effective education.

Topics include:

  • An overview of the ADA and Section 504 and how they compare with the IDEA
  • Eligibility for accommodations in school
  • How to secure accommodations
  • 504 plans
  • Types of accommodations
  • Accommodations in extracurricular activities
  • Options to resolve conflicts
