Perfect example!

Thank you for addressing those complaints Paul.
Edina Rutland
01:16:33
Our challenge is that even though we have a point of contact who handles complaints but it is not always immediately obvious that the student is part of our program - unless the complaint is disability related
Leona Crawford

They don't need to be a part of a DSPS program to submit an OCR complaint~
Gary Greco
01:20:32
AMEN!
Leona Crawford
01:20:47
Here you there!
Gary Greco
01:24:53
How many of the OCR Attorneys have prior knowledge/experience working with Adults with Disabilities? Just curious here.
Miriam Zamora-Kantor

Question regarding college classes that are held abroad - where our protective laws are not applicable. This was mentioned towards the beginning of the presentation. A College class can be free of accommodations?
Nathaniel Rice

For a deaf-blind student in a pottery class, which *hasn't* been canceled, if they are requesting an assistant and a tactile interpreter for this fall, how can we handle that, in light of COVID?
Sheryl Kern-Jones
01:47:59
Learning disability testing has been crucial in addressing equity concerns regarding access to accommodations and services for students who cannot afford private testing and have no other way to verify eligibility. With the current pandemic, testing is on hold while we navigate how to proceed. (Remote testing presents challenges due to the reliance of LD Specialists on developing rapport with students, clinical observations of behavior, needing decent internet connection, procedural challenges with disruptions and timing, maintaining test security, and interpretation of findings based upon norms that were not developed for these testing scenarios.)Would you address the legal and civil rights considerations of testing remotely in terms of equity issues regarding eligibility and access to DSPS accommodations/services, differences between student's internet connections and crowding in home situations that would impact our ability to test them remotely, the possibility of compromising security of instruments a

For Guerra, would having more ADA parking spaces near buildings have mitigated the access issues?
Gary Greco
01:48:16
If they are receptive it it. Thanks Paul!
Sheryl Kern-Jones
01:48:26
and the level of college responsibility for this, and consistency (or lack thereof) between access and practices at different campuses?
Mary Ciddio
01:49:33
Now that we are fully remote, how do we deal with the inaccessibility of our online programs for students with disabilities who have less ability to succeed in the online courses?

If a DHH student requests an ASL interpreter before the two weeks in advanced for an appointment at financial aid, admissions and records or any other service, does the student have the right to be accommodated within 3- 5 days?

Sorry - my final sentence was broken into 2 parts above:To repeat the Q: Would you address the legal and civil rights considerations of testing remotely in terms of equity issues regarding eligibility and access to DSPS accommodations/services, differences between student's internet connections and crowding in home situations that would impact our ability to test them remotely, the possibility of compromising security of instruments a

01:52:26
Regarding the Deaf-Blind student, I am not sure Paul understood how close a tactile interpreter need be.
Citlallin
01:53:21
How are new DHH students being accommodated before being part of DSPS? Do they have the right to request a Sign Language Interpreter even though the student is not part of DSPS yet? What is the process for a new DHH student to access interpreters prior to applying for DSPS services?
Edina Rutland
01:54:22
Citlallin, they have a right but you cannot use DSPS money until they become part of the program. Interpreters need to be provided by the College
Connie Gutierrez
01:55:05
I have a question: We have a student who does not want to access her courses via Canvas, instead she wants her instructors to create work packets for her to pick up. Her disability is not related to navigating technology. Any ideas how to address this?
Citlallin
01:57:01
Thanks Edina!
Terri Goldstein
01:57:09
What are some considerations for students requesting a waiver to wearing a mask? Someone with breathing difficulties, someone on the spectrum, someone with anxiety...
Citlallin

Thank you Paul.

Thank you for the info from EOC! My internet keeps cutting out so I'm reviewing the transcript to see what was said in answer to my questions :)

For students with significant anxiety, particularly social anxiety, and are not comfortable with test proctoring that uses a camera, can adjustments be made or is this compromising the integrity of the exam?

Thank you!

Remote Test Proctoring: We've had a number of students reporting that their prescription eyeglasses preventing use of Proctorio. So rather than anxiety issues, there were significant physical (e.g. lighting, eyeglass lense reflections) barriers.

Thank you.
