College to Career: Leveraging the ADA & Accommodations at Work (PowerPoint)

Students with disabilities who receive accommodations in higher education should be knowledgeable about disability disclosure, and requesting and negotiating reasonable accommodations under title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) when transitioning from college to career. During this session, a representative of the Job Accommodation Network (JAN), shared information about using JAN as a resource, offered practical tips for leveraging the ADA to request accommodations at work, and educated service providers about how to empower graduates with disabilities to self-advocate in the workplace.

This presentation was made available through a collaboration between JAN, AHEAD, the AHEAD Career SIG, and the Cooperative Education & Internship Association (CEIA).
