This module defined the 504 Act vs. ADA with both of these falling under civil rights protection acts. I found that the information about the three different definitions associated with a disability was helpful: those that have a disability, thoe who have a history/record of a disability, and those who are perceived as having a disability. I think that the key takeaway is that the inent of these acts is to help to ensure that all students receive an equal opportunity; however, it should not be assumed that students are automatically entitled to receiving an accommodation according to what is considered as a, "reasonable accommodation," vs, "non-reasonable."
