Webinar: Funding of Assistive Technology Through State Vocational Rehabilitation Agencies
December 18, 2013 2:00 to 3:45p.m. Eastern Time
This Free 105-Minute Teleconference is for attorneys, advocates, assistive technology (AT) specialists, and others. The presenters will provide a general overview of the federal criteria that governs the delivery of services by state vocational rehabilitation (VR) agencies to individuals with disabilities. The presenters will then explore the specific provisions in the federal Rehabilitation Act and the implementing regulations that describe when AT devices and services are available to allow an individual to participate in a VR program or allow an individual to achieve an employment outcome. Finally, the presenters will describe the appeals system that is available to challenge any denial of services, including the right to pursue a case in court following an adverse hearing decision. Trainees will be offered the opportunity to ask questions during the presentation at specific times. Both presenters have extensive expertise related to this topic and have written and lectured on the topic extensively to audiences throughout the country.

This is the third in a three-part "Funding of Assistive Technology Series" facilitated by Neighborhood Legal Services.  Below, you will find information describing the training, the available CLE credits, and the form for registration.  To register, please RSVP  to lurquhart at nls.org<mailto:lurquhart at nls.org>.
