State Univ. of New York, Ithaca. School of Industrial and Labor Relations at Cornell Univ.
This comprehensive trainer's guide and participant manual are designed to provide a planning process through which training programs on the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and its implications for persons with cognitive disabilities can be developed and delivered in a systematic way. Module 1 of the trainer's guide, "Planning and Coordinating ADA Training: Suggested Guidelines for Implementation at the State and Local Level," includes information to coordinate, custom design, and implement training. It addresses training needs assessment, identification and recruitment of participants, agenda development and recruitment of instructors, calculation of training costs, program and site coordination, packaging of instructional materials, program evaluation, and training delivery. Module 2, "Informational Resources To Enhance Training," contains information on accommodations requirements, a bibliography and list of resources, and a directory of Illinois state resources and federally funded ADA technical assistance. Module 3, "Trainer's Outline and Transparencies," includes extensive training notes and information sheets to be used as transparencies. Module 4, "Participant Manual," provides information on the disability movement; an overview of the ADA; a discussion of "reasonable accommodation" requirements; and a review of components of ADA's Title I, Title II, and Title III. Each module also contains appendices which provide examples of training materials, additional resources, and references. (CR)
