$15.00 – $18.00
This presentation will feature information about methods for interacting with mediation participants with disabilities, and addressing details that are often overlooked. For example: how to obtain signatures from a person who cannot use his/her arms or who cannot see where to sign the document; how to ensure that a person understands the documents or communications occurring at mediation if their vision or hearing is impaired, etc. Attendees may be given an opportunity to experience some of the challenges with which a person with disabilities may be faced during a mediation session.
