Press release from ADA-Indiana:
Free Audio Conference – Service Animals: Unraveling the differences and best practices
Are you interested in learning more about the differences and best practices for service animals and their owners? If so, you may want to attend the upcoming ADA audio conference entitled:
Unraveling the differences and best practices
The rights of people with disabilities who use service animals vary, depending on which law applies. The Americans with Disabilities Act, the Air Carrier Access Act, and the Fair Housing Act each have different standards for service animals and their owners. Complicating the topic even further is the issue of the definition of service animals, especially in relation to emotional support or therapy animals.
Attendees to the audio conference can expect to learn about the definition of service animals and the rights of service animal owners under the ADA, the ACAA, and the FHA. The discussion will also focus on the differences in how the various laws treat service animals versus emotional support or therapy animals, as well as model service animal policies for educational institutions and healthcare facilities.
When: January 19th , from 2:00-3:30 p.m.
Where: City- County Building, Rm 350, 1 East Main Street. Fort Wayne.
