Americans with Disabilities Act: Responsibilities for Postsecondary Institutions Serving Deaf and Hard of Hearing Students. Second Edition
Kincaid, Jeanne M.; Rawlinson, Sharaine J.
Midwest Center for Postsecondary Outreach
In May 1997 and March 1998, the Midwest Center for Postsecondary Outreach, in conjunction with St. Paul Technical College, hosted a video teleconference in which four other professionals and the authors appeared. Although they answered some of the questions submitted, due to time constraints, they were unable to respond to a number of the inquiries. This document provides attendees and other viewers with technical assistance to some of the questions posed for the authors' consideration. The information provided should not be considered legal advice, but merely serve as guidance in assisting providers, colleges and universities at large, and others in understanding the obligation of institutions of higher learning to serving students who are deaf and hard of hearing. The questions in this manual are organized by topic areas: Literacy, Auxiliary Services--Interpreting, Notetaking, and Captioning, Vocational Rehabilitation, Administration, Residence Halls, and Equipment. In the Vocational Rehabilitation section, there is a lengthy response from Mr. Frederic K. Schroeder, Commissioner of Rehabilitation Services, Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services, U.S. Department of Education, in response to questions sent to him. (Contains 71 footnotes.)
