Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act covers a lot of terrain. Many public agencies lack a specific understanding of their communication responsibilities to the Deaf and Hard of Hearing under Title II.

September is officially Deaf Awareness Month. In recognition, we are hosting an upcoming webinar called “ADA Title II: Understanding the Communication Responsibilities of State and Local Agencies.” During this webinar, leading ADA and disabilities rights expert Julia Sain will outline requirements for state and local government agencies when communicating with the Deaf and Hard of Hearing communities they serve. She will also address attendee questions.

In particular, this webinar will be essential listening for state and local government officials who are responsible for language access and compliance. Non-profit organizations that work with local government agencies to provide services will also find it of great interest.

Ms. Sain is a nationally renowned presenter with rich experience, who makes the nuances of ADA requirements come alive with practical examples.

This free webinar will take place Wednesday, September 18, 2019, at 11 a.m. PDT (2 p.m. EDT)

(Every month at LanguageLine is Deaf Awareness Month, so a recording will be shared once the webinar has concluded so other members of your organization can benefit.)

THE CLOSED-CAPTIONED WEBINAR WILL INCLUDE:

  • A discussion of effective communication requirements for people with disabilities under Title II of the ADA
  • A conversation about the proper use of “auxiliary aids and services” to enable effective communication
  • Helpful tips for state and local government organizations seeking to comply with Title II
  • A Q&A session with Julia Sain, Executive Director, Disability Rights and Resources, and nationally certified ADA Coordinator

Please register today for “ADA Title II: Understanding the Communication Responsibilities of State and Local Agencies.” We hope you’ll join us September 18.
