Youth Advisory Board meeting, Boston MA
Youth with Disabilities for an Advisory Board
We want to help young people know about their rights under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) as they apply to college or to their first job!
When students leave high school, they become responsible for identifying and securing the assistance they need to succeed. However, much of the time, students with disabilities are not taught about their rights, about advocating for their needs, or requesting accommodations.
WHO: Youth with disabilities (16-25)
WHY: Advise us on how we communicate with youth with disabilities
WHERE: Institute for Human Centered Design 200 Portland St. Boston MA
WHEN: March 22, 2014 @ 12:30PM -3:30PM
· How much do you know about the Americans with Disabilities Act?
· What would you like to know about the ADA?
· How would you like to receive information about your rights and accommodations?
Please contact Stacy Hart at 1-800-949-4232 or SHart@ihcdesign.org if you are interested in learning more about this opportunity.
