ADA POLICY STATEMENT

In keeping with the goals of the American Disabilities Act (ADA), which guarantees equal and full access to employment and public services for people with disabilities, the Health Matters Seminars (HMS) is committed to ensuring that its programs and services are accessible to the broadest range of people with disabilities. HMS does not discriminate on the basis of disability in admission or access to, or treatment or employment in its services, programs, or activities. Upon request, HMS will make its best effort to provide reasonable accommodations to allow individuals with disabilities to participate in all HMS services, programs, and activities. HMS has a designated coordinator to facilitate compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), as required by Section 35.107 of the U.S. Department of Justice regulations, and to coordinate compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 as mandated by Section 8.53 of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development regulations. This designated coordinator is Director, Sam Small.

Live Class Accessibility

HMS’s live classes are accessible to individuals of differing abilities through the variety of means and procedures established at the hotel facilities we rent to stage our classes.

Technology allows access to information about the various offerings of HMS. Our public website www.TherapyEDU.net is freely available and provides 24-hour access to online visitors and allows them to take a variety of actions including reviewing accessibility policies and procedures, discovering program offerings, finding information on course registration, and links to register for our courses. Our online Masterclass is delivered through a professional learning platform called Kajabi and is available to all currently paid students 24/7 with no limitations or expirations for as long as our course exists. Students can log in at https://masterclass.therapyedu.net

Design considerations allow for easy viewing and clear understanding of presented information. These design elements, along with others, are considered when creating pages for the website:

– Font size, style and color
– Navigation bar available on all pages
– Page topics are listed at the top of all pages
– Foreground and background colors provide sufficient contrast

The ultimate goal is to increase convenience and speed in delivering information, thereby encouraging the engagement of all people with HMS.
