  1. quick question, When providing information to SWD which pertains to Entrepreneurial options which pre-ET would this fall under?

  2. Thank you for your question Charlene. This would be discussed during job exploration counseling when you are discussing with the student various career pathways and career options, including the labor market, skills needed, and any minimum requirements or expectations of that career.

  3. Thanks I have another question in regards to Interpreters
    If a school is inviting VR to an IEP, and the VR counselor request an interpreter who is responsible to pay for interpreter?

  4. I need some clarification. I am working on securing interpreters for a the PreETS event . Since its preETS related I am going to charge this to the 15% budget; however i need clarification if we can charge the following-mileage, travel time, hotel and per diem for the interpreters as well to the 15%. I think Mileage , travel time we can. But unsure about hotel & per diem.

  5. Hi Charlene, based on the information included below, as the public entity hosting the meeting and inviting VR to the meeting, the school would be responsible for providing any reasonable accommodations, unless they can demonstrate an undue hardship.

    The ADA requires that title II entities (State and local governments) and title III entities (businesses and nonprofit organizations that serve the public) communicate effectively with people who have communication disabilities. Covered entities must provide auxiliary aids and services when needed to communicate effectively with people who have communication disabilities.The rules apply to communicating with the person who is receiving the covered entity’s goods or services as well as with that person’s parent, spouse, or companion in appropriate circumstances. The term “companion” includes any family member, friend, or associate of a person seeking or receiving an entity’s goods or services who is an appropriate person with whom the entity should communicate.

    Section 504 regulation, 34 C.F.R. § 104.4, forbids exclusion from participation in any program or activity of a recipient of federal funding, and the Americans with Disabilities Act regulations governing state and local government activities require that “A public entity shall make reasonable modifications in policies, practices, or procedures when the modifications are necessary to avoid discrimination on the basis of disability, unless the public entity can demonstrate that making the modifications would fundamentally alter the nature of the service, program, or activity,” 28 C.F.R. § 35.130(b)(7), and “A public entity shall furnish appropriate auxiliary aids and services where necessary to afford individuals with disabilities, including applicants, participants, companions, and members of the public, an equal opportunity to participate in, and enjoy the benefits of, a service, program, or activity of a public entity.” Under the regulations, primary consideration must be given to the request of the individual with a disability in determining what types of auxiliary aids and services are provided, id. at .160(b)(2), and the covered entity must ensure that communications with applicants, participants, members of the public, and companions with disabilities are as effective as communications with others,” id. at .160(a)(1).
