Obama Orders Schools to Give Disabled Kids Sports Access. Children with disabilities must have “equal access” to school athletics, U.S.
President Barack Obama’s administration said today. Schools are required to make “reasonable modifications” to let disabled children take part in sports, the U.S. Education Department’s Office for Civil Rights said in a letter to districts. For example, a track team must give a visual cue alongside a starter pistol, so a deaf student could race. The agency told school districts that such accommodations have long been required for extracurricular activities -- as they are for academics -- under a 1973 civil-rights law, section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act.
“Sports can provide invaluable lessons in discipline, selflessness, passion and courage, and this guidance will help schools ensure that students with disabilities have an equal opportunity to benefit from the life lessons they can learn on the playing field or on the court,” Education Secretary Arne Duncan said in a statement. ‘A Landmark’ Separate Programs. Students with Disabilities and Extracurricular Activities. One of the most important aspects of school is non-academic extracurricular activities.
Boosting Inclusion for Students with Disabilities. Administrators in public schools are undoubtedly familiar with their duties under federal law to serve students with disabilities in the educational program.
Far fewer, however, are aware of their legal obligations to these same students in after-school athletics and extracurricular activities. The Importance of Inclusion and Community for Children With Special Needs - Early Intervention Support. Boosting Inclusion in After School Activities with AT and Supplemental Services. By: National Center for Technology Innovation and Center for Implementing Technology in Education (CITEd) The Individuals with Disabilities Improvement Act (IDEA 2004) mandates that supplemental services and assistive technology be provided when necessary to students who receive special education services.
While the benefits of such supports can be used to meet the academic needs of students with disabilities, supplemental services can also contribute to the social needs of students in activities outside the regular school day. NCTI has suggestions for how assistive and accessible technologies and other supplemental services can help make activities more inclusive for students with special needs.
It is critical that education professionals keep pace with students' desire to be involved with extracurricular activities by making certain that they have access to the necessary assistive and adaptive technology and other supplemental services.
