"RIGHTS OF PARENTS AND/OR CHILDREN WITH DISABILITIES TO RECEIVE ACCOMMODATIONS TO ACHIEVE PERMANENCY"
Speaker: Matthew Dietz
The Americans with Disabilities Act requires child welfare programs and services to provide parents with disabilities and children with disabilities with necessary accommodations to provide the supports and services necessary to ensure reunification with family or placement in the most suitable, community-based placement. This workshop will provide training on the legal basis for this right, give tools to use to educate judges and others in the child-welfare system of such rights, and address strategies with real-life scenarios.
For those with the Guardian ad Litem Program, this 1.5 hour training does apply towards in-service hours.
