Posted on October 13, 2017 By

Understanding how to help and accommodate anyone with a disability – difficulty hearing, wheelchair, problems seeing, among other impairments – is important for anyone who interacts with the public.

Luana Fahr, M.S. Ed, LDT-C, director of the Academic Development and Support Center and disabilities officer at Georgian Court University (GCU), is presenting Disabilities Sensitivity Training, open to the public, October 18, 2017, at 5:30 p.m., at the Strand Center for the Arts, 400 Clifton Avenue, Lakewood, N.J. Topics include disabilities etiquette, accessibility, and a history of laws, including those associated with employment of people with disabilities.

Fahr, the author of the book, Living on the Right Side of Zero, and the article, “Accommodations in College: Leveling the Playing Field,” in Off to College magazine, addresses all student accommodation and modification requests at GCU, serves as an instructor of the course Professional Development and Disability, and is a member of the executive board of NJAHEAD (New Jersey Association on Higher Education and Disability).

A donation for the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) seminar is $10.00 per adult and $5.00 per student with ID at the door.
