It is informative to know ADA is treated as case by case consideration.  Reasonable modifications may be made to policies, practies and procedures to ensure they are not discriminatory.

Providing accommodations must be to provide equal access.  One must be careful to not use the purpose of accommodations as means to promote success oppose to access.


Learning about the different type of disabilities was interesting.  ADHD is often referenced in the educational setting, others not mentioned as much are dyscalculia (difficulty with math) and dysgraphia (difficulty with writing).   

Students with disabilities have the right to equal access to educational opportunities.  They only have a right to an accommodation if they would not receive equal access without the accommodation.  


It was informative to learn and understand the correlation between FERPA and HIPPA laws in addidtion to learning about the Solomon Amendent.  

I learned that students have rights to request a record amendent. I also learned FERPA does not apply to applicants during the application process.

I learned the importance of keeping students records confidential, in addition to understanding to whom one may release the records to.  


I learned the importance of staying clear from the FPCO investigating complaints and violations.  This may be avoided by employees being compliant and receiving continued education on FERPA.
