As part of our awareness and outreach efforts, staff members from Office of Disability Access (ODA) will facilitate presentations for the UNT community. Our most common presentation request topics are listed below, but we may be able to tailor a presentation to fits the needs of your group or a specific topic.
A general overview of the ODA including a review of the student population demographics, common accommodations and the process for students to request and set-up accommodations. Specific discussion topics for each audience (instructors, students, etc.) may be added or by request.
Panel of Students/Individuals with Disabilities
A panel of individuals with disabilities (usually 3-6 panelists) share their personal experiences and answer questions from the audience. An ODA staff member typically takes the lead to recruit panelists and facilitate the panel discussion. Panel membership can be broad (many different types of disabilities) or specific (focused on a particular type of disability).
ODA staff members will participate in various campus resource fairs to be available to answer questions about how to request accommodations (for students) or how to work with our office to set-up accommodations (faculty/staff).
Other Presentation Topics
Customized topics and presentations may be offered depending on staff expertise and availability. When appropriate we may refer your request to another university office or community agency – OR – we may try to partner with other university offices or community agency to present the topic.
