What is ADA?
The term “disability” is defined as a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more of a person’s major life activities (Section 504, Rehabilitation Act).
国产偷拍视频The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) and Sec 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 are civil rights guarantees for persons with disabilities in the U.S. and are designed to eliminate discrimination against qualified individuals on the basis of disability.
国产偷拍视频In order to establish that an individual is covered under the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, documentation must be provided that indicates the disability substantially limits some major life activity, including learning.
It is the responsibility of the student to identify themselves as a disabled person and request assistance from TUW at their own expense.
Students with a documented disability who require assistance must provide appropriate documentation and request accommodations (based on disability) four to six weeks prior to their needs to allow TUW to review the request and make arrangements accordingly.
