[Athen] Institutions Accessibility Plans

Our disability services colleagues were involved in the initial discussions about the need for a technology accessibility plan, but due to their office short-staffed, we have handled everything since then and just inform them of developments. My area handles technology accessibility training and, as far as I know, our DS office does not offer training to the campus. They do help faculty and students in one-on-one sessions as needed for accommodations assistance.

Hope this helps,

Good Morning:

Question....I'm interested in knowing how involved the office of Disability Services has been in the creation/ implementation of your institution's Accessibility Plan?

Were there any trainings provided by the office of Disability Services regarding accessibility, the ADA, Section 504, roles and responsibilities, etc.?

How could the offices of Disability Services be a part of the implementation of the Accessibility Plans?

Thank you in advance, and I really appreciate your time and feedback!
