Living with a chronic medical condition like hydrocephalus can also mean living with a number of other health conditions, including mild to severe physical, cognitive, and/or mental health challenges. As adults (or children growing into adults) living with differing abilities, what protections do we have under federal law? How is disability defined in the U.S.? How can this definition both define and confine us, as individuals?
Join Betty Siegel, a nationally recognized leader in disability, human and civil rights, for an engaging presentation on the history and evolution of federal laws and legislation for individuals with disabilities, the protections they provide, and how they relate to individuals living with hydrocephalus. If you've heard of an IEP or a 504 plan, have felt that you were treated differently or that you had to hide your hydrocephalus or any other differing abilities, this webinar is for you!
