Compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act

The Americans with Disabilities Act requires that disabled persons must be reasonably accommodated by modifying policies, making physical changes, and obtaining equipment to assist their participation in any activity.

For PTA meetings, this could include seating to accommodate an attendant accompanying a member or reserved seating in a location to accommodate a member’s special need, providing written handouts to supplement discussion, and/or providing qualified readers or interpreters for members having a hearing or sight impairment.
