Developing Policies to Manage the Menagerie

Author: JaneJarrow

Over the last 20+ years, I have been conducting online professional development classes for disability services providers on a wide range of topics. Many of those classes have focused on the legal mandates that guide programs of support to students with disabilities on college campuses. Among the nearly 200 classes presented over the years, several have dealt specifically with an analysis of the critical elements of Section 504 that translate to policy and practice. Among those critical elements is the definition of “otherwise qualified.” The most recent review of this concept through my online classes was a class entitled, “Who IS Otherwise Qualified?” The class was presented in November, 2019.
