Recommendations to New York State for strategies to increase access
3. Capacity of all campus personnel and students to work with and teach students with disabilities (continued)
Faculty and staff have ready access and the incentive to utilize the resources they
need that will enable them to teach and work more effectively with students with disabilities.
Toward this end, the Task Force recommends the following strategies:
- The New York State Education Department, in conjunction with postsecondary education institutions, faculty and
staff professional organizations, co-sponsors regional professional development seminars/ workshops highlighting
innovative teaching, effective accommodation practices and model student disability support programs.
- The New York State Education Department, with the four education sectors, creates a website through which colleges
and universities can disseminate and share information on the ongoing training and professional development of all
faculty, staff, administration, professional and support staff in working with and teaching students with disabilities.
