These trainings are a two-day course administered through the ADA National Network, NYC Mayor’s Office for People with Disabilities (MOPD), and the New York City Department of Citywide Administrative Services (DCAS). The program provides training on the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) as well as other federal, state and local laws that impact people with disabilities. The hallmark of the program is that it provides the most relevant and up to date information, guidelines, new resources and other pertinent information that is specific to city governmental programs, services and activities offered to New Yorkers with disabilities. The training is meant to establish a knowledge base essential to performing the role of the DSF/ADA Coordinator in New York City.
Basic awareness training on disability includes ADA information, language etiquette and other best practices.
This toolkit and resource guide provides NYC Disability Services Facilitators (DSFs) with quick links to disability information, guides, worksheets and resources.
