How well are you serving students with sensory disabilities?
Are you aware that students with vision loss may legally request video description as a “reasonable accommodation”?

Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973

Section 504 is a federal law designed to protect the rights of individuals with disabilities in programs and activities that receive Federal financial assistance from the U.S. Department of Education (ED). Specifically, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, (Section 504) is a civil rights statute that provides: “No otherwise qualified individual with a disability in the United States … shall, solely by reason of her or his disability, be excluded from the participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance …”
Recipients of Federal financial assistance include public school districts, institutions of higher education, and other state and local education agencies.

Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services (OSERS)

Some students are further protected by the Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services (OSERS), also a component of ED. OSERS administers the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), a statute which funds special education programs. IDEA is a grant statute and attaches many specific conditions to the receipt of Federal IDEA funds.
