2016 Assistive Technology Conference of New England
The Assistive Technology Conference of New England is Rhode Island’s only conference dedicated to technology, people with disabilities, families and professionals.
In addition to many other presentations, Stacy Hart, ADA Trainer, Information and Outreach Specialist, New England ADA Center, will present the following:
The ADA and Transition-Aged Youth Seeking Employment.
Graduating from high school is a rite of passage that is both exciting and scary. To help smooth the transition from high school into employment there are important differences between the ADA and IDEA that young people need to know and talk about. We will discuss disclosure and asking for a reasonable accommodation on the job. It can feel tough to talk about a disability for the first time in a new environment, so it can help to think ahead about the accommodations you need to do your job.
