Press release from the Allen County Human Resources department:

Corrections and the ADA: Free Audio Conference on Tuesday, September 21st at City-County Building
Allen County Human Resources will host a free audio conference on the Corrections and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

(September 10, 2010) – Studies show that a large number of individuals within the prison system are people with disabilities. The literature discusses how the various systems serving incarcerated individuals have historically treated people with disabilities in a manner that did not address their rights to equal access to programs and services, as well as the removal of physical barriers or provision of effective communication. This session will explore the strides that have been made and strategies implemented within the corrections community to address the rights of individuals with disabilities while retaining its focus on imposing punishment.

The free audio conference will be held on Tuesday, September 21st from 2:00 – 3:30 p.m. at City-County Building, Room 350, located at 1 E. Main Street in Fort Wayne.

For further information, contact Vanessa Miller at (260) 449-7171, or

The Indiana ADA Audio Conference program is sponsored by ADA-Indiana, DBTAC: Great Lakes ADA Center, and the Indiana Governor’s Council for People with Disabilities. For more information about this or any other ADA trainings, please visit the ADA-Indiana website at
