About this product
- DescriptionStudents with disabilities studying health sciences face unique challenges within their educational environments that require distinct accommodations. This is a vital resource for administrators and faculty in health science programs that describes how to provide accommodations that meet the needs of students with disabilities in academic health science settings. Grounded in federal disability law, case law, and Office for Civil Rights (OCR) determinations, this highly practical manual is written by experienced disability service providers from some of the most prestigious health science schools in the country. In a clear, well-organized format, they bring their expertise to bear on all aspects of disability and disability law in multiple health science settings. Citing legal cases and real life scenarios, they describe best practices for good decision-making, how to avoid problems by implementing strong accessibility-focused policies, and how to resolve problems in difficult cases.
