The Bureau of Accessibility and Job Accommodation (BAJA) and the Illinois ADA Project host an ADA Distance Learning session on "Reporting Clearly and Accurately about Disability." This two-part session will discuss an increasing demand for respectful and effective reporting about disability in the media. Part I (30 minutes) is for those who want quick overview and focuses on five key points to keep in mind when reporting on disability. For those who want a deeper insight, Part II (60 minutes) is a panel of journalists discussing their ideas and experiences around disability reporting.
Please note: The webinar is designed so that attendees can choose to attend the whole webinar or to only attend Part I (the 30 minute quick overview).
