Disability Awareness Project: Professional Ethics in the Classroom St. Petersburg College recognizes the importance of equal access for all students. In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the College and its Office of Services for Students with Disabilities seeks to ensure that admission, academic programs, support services, student activities, and campus facilities are accessible to and usable by students who document a qualifying disability with the College. Reasonable accommodations are available to students who: * are otherwise qualified for admission to the College * identify themselves to appropriate College personnel * provide acceptable and qualifying documentation to the College. It is the student's responsibility to provide notice of the nature of the disability to the College and to assist in identifying appropriate and effective accommodation. Students must personally identify the need, provide supporting diagnostic test results and professional evaluations, participate in planning services, and give adequate notice in requesting accommodation. A Counselor/Learning Specialist in the Office of Services for Students with Disabilities (OSSD) is assigned to oversee services on each SPC campus. Made possible through a grant from the Department of Education.

Iraq War Vets Disabilities Are Being Downgraded As a disabled veteran who served this country, I was alarmed when reading a news article that stated that Iraq War Veterans disabilities were being downgraded! With all the talk of Support the Troops going around our nation I am reminded once again of the old saying that talk is cheap. According to this news article several soldiers were given a zero per-cent disability rating by the Army who had traumatic brain injury, caused by roadside bombs while assigned in Iraq. This is unbeleivable in this day and age that men who have put it all on the line will soon be seen walking aimlessly down the street as they join the ranks of the homeless.This is an outrage that must be addressed before our veterans wounded in this conflict hit rock bottom!
Senator Barack Obama on Autism and Disability From the candidate's website: "We must build a world free of unnecessary barriers, stereotypes, and discrimination .... policies must be developed, attitudes must be shaped, and buildings and organizations must be designed to ensure that everyone has a chance to get the education they need and live independently as full citizens in their communities." Obama's comprehensive agenda to empower individuals with disabilities fits in with the campaign's overarching message of equalizing opportunities for all Americans. In addition to reclaiming America's global leadership on this issue by becoming a signatory to -- and having the Senate ratify -- the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, the plan has four parts, designed to provide lifelong supports and resources to Americans with disabilities. They are as follows: First, provide Americans with disabilities with the educational opportunities they need to succeed. Second, end discrimination and promote equal opportunity. Third, increase the employment rate of workers with disabilities. And fourth, support independent, community-based living for Americans with disabilities. The National Autistic Society of America does not endorse any political candidate.
Learning Disability Dynamics Learning Disability Dynamics is all about helping kids with Learning Disabilities. Experts say the problem is not with intelligence or the willingness to work hard. The problem, they say, is that some people's brains process information differently. By definition, people with learning disabilities are average or above average in their intelligence. But their disorders may affect their ability to gain knowledge and, as a result, limit their success in school or jobs. Different people can have different kinds of learning disabilities. One person may have difficulty with language development. Another may have problems with reading or writing. Still another may have trouble working with numbers. People can have more than one disorder, but reading is the most common area of difficulty. Learning disabilities are neurological disorders that affect the brain's ability to store, process and communicate information. The National Center for Learning Disabilities estimates that fif*** million Americans, or five percent, are affected. The group says three million students in the United States receive some kind of special help in school because of learning disabilities. There are different names for different disorders. For example, a person who has difficulty reading may have dyslexia. Someone who has trouble with mathematics may have dyscalculia. Learning disabilities may help explain why some students do not perform as well in school as ...

People on disability are not lazy! There are a lot of stereotypes and stigmas surrounding people with a mental disability that renders them unemployable being on government-funded programs, such as SSI, SSDI or some form of state-run benefits. Mental disabilities can be just as debilitating as physical ones, and can either be permanent or temporary. However, the vast majority of people I have met on benefits are good people with very good reasons for being on benefits, but yet they are still called lazy, worthless and freeloaders by people who BELIEVE their tax dollars are going to support these people. This is not necessarily the case. In this video I will try to dispel some of these myths, clear up a few stereotypes and speak on my OWN experiences. Remember, these are my OWN experiences, yours may be different. If you NEED HELP, please speak up and ask for it. Your local department of health and social services can be found easily online or in the phone book and would be more than happy to assist you finding help in your area for your specific needs.

National Center for Learning Disabilities: 2008 Benefit The National Center for Learning Disabilities (NCLD) works to ensure that the nation's 15 million children, adolescents and adults with learning disabilities have every opportunity to succeed in school, work and life. Our annual benefit was held on April 10, 2008. This year's honoree was Ted Turner. Visit for more information. Visit http to help support our mission.
Accessibility: For everyone's Benefit More than one in ten, that is, at least 50m citizens throughout the EU, must deal with a disability and are confronted daily with physical barriers. And, as populations are increasingly ageing and disabilities are often acquired with age, their number is set to increase. Although EU legislation has been in place since 2000 to implement the principle of equal treatment in employment, disabled people still remain among the most disadvantaged social groups throughout Europe. Indeed, 45% of Europeans recently surveyed think that discrimination amongst disabled people is particularly rife.

Health Care Disparities for Persons with Disabilities In recognition of the 20th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, Sargent College invited Lisa I. Iezzoni to speak at its annual Dudley Allen Sargent lecture. Her lecture, "Health Care Disparities for Persons with Disabilities," discusses evidence of disparities, historical and legal views regarding disabilities and disability rights, barriers to care, and solutions to those disparities. Now a professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School and associate director of the Mongan Institute for Health Policy at the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, Iezzoni became the first woman to be promoted to professor of medicine in the Department of Medicine at Beth Israel Hospital in Boston in 1998. Diagnosed with multiple sclerosis during the 1980s, she has used a wheelchair for more than 20 years. Her most recent book, When Walking Fails: Mobility Problems of Adults with Chronic Conditions, draws from extensive interviews of 119 mobility-challenged people that were taken when Iezzoni was a Robert Wood Johnson Health Policy Fellow. Hosted by Sargent College on November 1, 2010.
