Ann Cook-Graver, senior attorney for the Office for Civil Rights (U.S. Department of Education) in Chicago, will speak about academic adjustments and accommodations for college students with disabilities on Thursday, Feb. 25, at 9 a.m. in the Memorial Union Hidatsa room.
Cook-Graver will talk about federal policy, legislation and case law that guide work with students who have disabilities. According to Jennifer Erickson, NDSU disability specialist, there's a great deal of diversity within the area of disability, which offers many rewards and opportunities to engage in effective decision-making strategies to serve this unique and heterogeneous group of individuals.
Individuals with disabilities are invited to request reasonable accommodations to participate in NDSU sponsored programs and events. To request an accommodation, contact Erickson at 1-7714 or send an e-mail to email@example.com. Requests are encouraged by Wednesday, Feb. 10.
