This series of three videos is hosted by Noel Gregg, Director of the Learning Disabilities Center and Distinguished Research Professor at University of Georgia. In these three videos, she interviewers two attorneys who are nationally known experts in disability law, Jeanne Kincaid and Jo Anne Simon.
- Documentation and Admissions
In the first video (60 minutes running time), titled Documentation and Admissions, the questions addressed pertain to admissions procedures for students who disclose that they have a disability in the admissions process and the required documentation that students must provide if they want to receive accommodations and services.
In the second video in this series (59 minutes running time), titled Accommodations, the two attorneys address the legal mandates regarding provision of accommodations, commonly provided accommodations, the responsibilities of the college or university, and policies that institutions need to develop.
- Programming and Policy
In the third video (80 minutes running time), titled Programming and Policy, the experts address the importance of policies pertaining to students with disabilities and describe the grievance policy and procedures, course substitution, health and safety, readmissions, and distance learning policies and procedures among others.
Please note: This three-part series pertains to individuals with all types of disabilities, not just those with learning disabilities and/or ADHD.
Computer Access: In our Own Words
University of Washington students who have disabilities describe how their abilities are improved by using technology. Students give testimony about the technology they use and are shown using that technology. Independence is fostered, and the students feel that they are on a more level playing field with their “non-disabled” peers through the electronic media. The film is close captioned, and students are identified in parentheses as they speak. There are 10 segments: Introduction, Low Vision, Blindness, Hearing Impairment; Speech Impairment; Learning Disabilities; Mobility Impairment; & Health Impairment; Recap and concluding graphic information about the web site and the grant that funds the Do-It project and film.
This video was produced by University of Washington, Project DO-IT, directed by Sheryl Burstahler, PH.D.
