The next GSPT webinar on Housing Rights for Families with Special Needs Children is scheduled for Wednesday, October 21 from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm PDT with guest speaker Celia McGuinness, a seasoned disability rights trial lawyer. Many parents who advocate for their children’s rights in school and with Regional Centers do not know their children have rights to fair housing as well. Here, we discuss federal and state protections against disability discrimination in the home, such as rights to reasonable accommodation; alteration, repair and maintenance of accessible property features; and assistance animals. We offer concrete methods for getting the alterations and accommodations your child needs to be safe and comfortable at home.
The presentation will be one hour followed by 30 minutes for Q&A. There is no cost to participate but you must register here
