09/29/2022 – Understanding ADA Requirements & Transition Plan Development or Title II Entities – Online Course

8:30 am – 12:30 pm CDT – Kristi Avalos will be presenting this online course hosted by the North Central Texas Council of Governments.

Course Description:

Regulations, and standards, and laws, oh my! Self-evaluations and transition plans are a daunting concept for anyone responsible for complying with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Mandated for public entities by Title II of the ADA, they are designed to establish accountability between governments and the disabled community, and well-implemented ones can pivot the course of litigation with the Department of Justice. What does that look like though? Even seasoned employees of state and local governments find themselves struggling to sift through the layers of planning, funding, data collection, and more when it comes to developing effective self-evaluations and transition plans. Kristi Avalos, who has 40+ years of accessibility experience, has the ability to sort through the vast confusion as she collects answers to the hardest questions.

Learning Goals:

This course is designed to provide practical information and tangible tactics for composing and implementing self-evaluations and transition plans for Title II entities of all sizes, as well as offer resources to develop critical thinking skills to manage any barrier in accessibility.
