10:00 AM - 11:30 AM AHEAD: Accessibility Training or Neurodiversity
(Track A) Comprehensive Accessibility Training Means Everyone, Including Students (UC 101) Carolyn Speer, Ph.D., Wichita State University The agreement Wichita State has with the National Federation of the Blind defines instructors broadly to include anyone providing course content to students. This means the entire campus community, including students, needs to be trained in accessible presentation. This, along with other training requirements listed in the agreement, has presented a monumental training challenge for the university. The manager of the office involved in creating, delivering, and promoting this training state-wide will be on-hand to discuss how this was done and its effectiveness. (Track B) Neurodiversity and the College Campus (UC 215 or Katy 3-23) Jane Thierfeld Brown, Ed.D., College Autism Spectrum & Yale Child Study Lorre Wolf, Ph.D., Boston University Neurodiversity is sometimes used as a term to refer to Autism. However, neurodiversity can be recognized in many forms on college campuses. ADD/ADHD, Autism, Psychiatric Disabilities, and many other brain related impairments can affect students in multiple and complicated ways. A focus on simple cognitive strategies designed for DS practitioners will help attendees learn to foster development of self-regulatory skills to support students’ success. Reactions and responses to other students will also be discussed.

1:00 PM - 2:00 PM AHEAD: Disability Justice or Student Conduct/BAT Issues
(Track A) Disability Justice and Ableism in Higher Education (UC 101) Arlene Kanter, J.D., LL.M., Syracuse University It is now more than 25 years since the adoption of the Americans with Disabilities Act and more than 45 years since the enactment of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. Both of these laws prohibit discrimination against students, faculty and staff with disabilities, including by colleges and universities. Yet even after all these many years, disability remains virtually invisible from diversity conversations, curriculum, and scholarship in higher education in the United States. We will discuss the reasons for this absence of disability in diversity initiatives within higher education in the U.S. and in other countries, followed by a discussion of what we can and must do about it. (Track B) At the Intersection of Disability and Conduct (UC 215 or Katy 3-23) L. Scott Lissner, The Ohio State University A brief overview of research and statistics on campus threats and violence will frame a review of current regulations and case law and how they intersect with college conduct processes, behavioral assessment/care teams, and campus threat response. Practices that balance individual rights and community safety with be addressed.

3:00 PM - 5:00 PM AHEAD: Disability Services Core or Campus Universal Design
(Track A) Know Your WHY to Excel at Your WHAT (UC 101) Adam Meyer, Ph.D., University of Central Florida Lance Alexis, Ed.D., Middle Tennessee University Ann Knettler, M.A., Delaware State University Long hours, strained resources, and increasing responsibilities make it easy to lose sight of core purposes of a disability office. However, if you do not know WHY you exist and intentionally incorporate your WHY in all you do (language used, documentation processes, accommodation determinations, faculty interactions, etc.), you cannot be effective in establishing, promoting, and accomplishing your office’s purpose. This session will explore strategies for developing your overall purpose and integrating it into your practice. (Track B) Building a Campus-wide Universal Design Framework from the Ground Up (UC 215 or Katy 3-23) Sheryl Burgstahler, Ph.D., University of Washington UD has emerged as a paradigm to address diversity and equity in the design of a broad range of applications, including educational software, instruction, and student services. Engage with the speaker and other participants about how applying a UD framework to all aspects of campus life can influence the expectation that technology procured, developed and used on campus will be accessible too. Develop a UD framework tailored to your campus that provides a guide for making teaching and learning, student services, IT, and physical spaces inclusive of everyone.
