Disability Rights: Educational Advocacy and Reasonable Accommodations
MEDICAL UNIVERSITY OF SOUTH CAROLINA - CHARLESTON, SC - AUGUST 2019
Children and adults with chronic illnesses and disabilities of varying degrees may be entitled to various services and/or accommodations.
Nurse Juliana Weninger reviews the different ways that you can advocate for yourself or your child at work, at school and even at home.
Learn more about what it means for someone to be "home-bound", understand what "reasonable" accommodations are, and different issues related to accessibility at work and in school (IEPs, 504 plans, and the pros and cons of virtual school).
