Webinar on Transportation Issues

If you are interested in transportation issues and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), plan to participate in an upcoming free webinar offered by the ADA National Network and Easter Seals Project ACTION. Scheduled for Tuesday, December 14, 2010 from 2:00-3:30 (eastern). This session is the third of seven Webinars on Transportation and the ADA. Each session will focus on one of the seven Topic Guides on ADA Transportation, a series of Technical Assistance publications released by DREDF earlier this year. Register for this one webinar, or for the entire series.

This webinar session will cover the Topic Guide 3: Eligibility for ADA Paratransit. The session will first address the categories and types of eligibility, including conditional eligibility. Important best-practice do's and don'ts will also be discussed, including basing decisions on the most limiting condition, using a comprehensive task/skill list, applying the reasonable person test, identifying specific abilities and/or limitations, basing decisions on a case-by-case analysis of each applicant, and interpreting safety issues properly. Additionally, this will address the eligibility determination process, including the 21-day process, functional assessments, the appeal process for eligibility denials, and visitors. There will be time for participant questions.
