  • Title: The Things They Bring: Accommodations Abroad
  • Description: When individuals with disabilities study abroad they bring some of their reasonable accommodations with them. Does that service animal have the right documentation to go to Europe? Will there be repair services for that power wheelchair? Are those medications available? Are they legal? These require a few extra steps that students and Access practitioners should know. Learn how to keep your students healthy, on the move and out of jail with the tips that specialists from the Department of State-funded National Clearinghouse on Disability and Exchange will share.
  • When: July 21, 2022 from 2pm to 3pm.
  • Where: Huntington Convention Center of Cleveland
