Prepping for Emergencies with Disabled or Special-Needs Students
Cavanagh, John; Malia, Anne
Education Digest: Essential Readings Condensed for Quick Review, v72 n7 p58-59 Mar 2007
Disability-related emergency information that focuses on schools can be found at Emergency Info Online, a free online service and printer-friendly directory produced by Bridge Multimedia, a New York City-based media services company that develops universally accessible media. This preparedness tool offers a wealth of compiled digital information on emergency preparedness, response, and recovery--with a particular emphasis on individuals with special needs. It provides in-depth information to address a broad range of questions, including: (1) What exactly is involved in creating an emergency plan that includes the needs of students with disabilities?; (2) What do government agencies do to help ensure the inclusion of people with disabilities in emergency plans?; and (3) How to ensure that a child's school can accommodate the needs of children with disabilities in an emergency?
