Are YOU breaking the law without realizing it in your after school or summer program? Sometimes simple awareness can save your program thousands of dollars in legal fees and litigation. Assistant United States Attorney Lisa Perkins, will provide an overview of titles II and III of the ADA and present case studies involving the failure to accommodate children with disabilities in summer camps and afterschool programs.
