DISABILITY LAWS AND LEGAL ISSUES IN HIGHER EDUCATION

P. Roubides

Broward College (UNITED STATES)
At all levels of education and employment, student and worker populations include individuals with disabilities, with a range of severity, from modest disabilities affecting learning, such as Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and dyslexia, to more severe ones, such mental retardation, autism, or brain injuries, as well as other health conditions that may necessitate special accommodations. Because of the nature of some disabilities and their effect on learning capacity and academic or employment performance, special academic or employment treatment and assistance of such individuals is mandated under federal disability laws.

Disability laws exist in order to protect the rights of certain qualified individuals who may otherwise not be able to benefit from the same rights and opportunities available to other people. They can equally be applied to many settings, such as employment or education. When rights of such individuals may have been violated, frequently, recourse may lead to the exercise of the legal process. This monogram examines the process and impact of legal recourse through the analysis of a sample of three separate legal cases in higher education arising from the application of various clauses of disability laws in the United States
