Disability Access – How to Meet Your Legal Obligations and Make Your Programs Accessible

  • Is your organization communicating effectively with individuals who have vision, hearing, or speech disabilities?
  • Is your medical equipment accessible to patients with disabilities?
  • Is your facility accessible to individuals with mobility-based disabilities?

For programs and services that receive federal financial assistance, federal civil rights laws prohibit discrimination on the basis of disability. Recipients of HRSA funding must ensure that individuals with disabilities have equal access to all of their programs and activities.

We'll include a summary of relevant law, an explanation of your obligations as they relate to disability access, and a discussion on how you can meet those obligations. We'll also touch on specific topics related to disability access, including physical access, medical access, and effective communication.

2-3 p.m.
Language Access—How to Meet Your Legal Obligations and Make Your Programs Accessible
Federal civil rights laws prohibit discrimination against individuals who are limited English proficient (LEP). Recipients of HRSA funding must take reasonable steps to ensure LEP individuals have meaningful access to all of their programs and activities.

We'll summarize relevant laws, explain HRSA recipient obligations as they relate to language access, and discuss how you can meet those obligations.

We'll walk you through the process of creating a language access plan. This will serve as your organization’s roadmap to providing quality language access services.

We'll also examine common challenges that organizations face when trying to provide language access services and review practical solutions for how to address those challenges.

3-4 p.m.
Cost Effective Accessibility – Practical Strategies to Meet the Needs of Your Service Populations
We'll focus on strategies designed to provide effective language and disability access to your constituents in a way that makes the best use of your resources.

Following the presentation, you'll break into small groups and engage in a facilitated discussion focused on networking, sharing resources, and highlighting successful practice.
