Intercollegiate Academic Clinical Coordinators Council (IACCC) Continuing Education Presentation

March 26, 2015

Intercollegiate Academic Clinical Coordinators Council (IACCC) Continuing Education Presentation

Nana Sadamura, Ph.D.

Dr. Sadamura will address the application of disability-related law and accommodations in clinical Physical Therapy training settings.

An increasing number of students with learning disabilities are pursuing professional training. However, some of the accommodations identified for the classroom are inappropriate or insufficiently effective in clinical settings, something that the students themselves may not realize. Knowledge of disability-related law can aid site supervisors in identifying ways to appropriately support student learning, while utilization of University Design approaches can facilitate access to learning. Encouraging students to self-identify to site supervisors can facilitate timely identification of appropriate accommodations and enable collaboration with clinical supervisors in developing effective accommodations.
