Consumer workshop on Section 504

This project paper is an effort to bring together several pieces of information into a format that may be utilized for a workshop on Section 504 for grassroots participants who are deaf. Various materials and literature were combed to obtain the rationale and the logistics of an effective workshop model. Films and film strips were reviewed and are suggested in the Reference section. The success of each workshop rests with the ability of the conductors of each workshop to be able to communicate effectively with its participants at their pace and level of comprehension. Most of the material may be made into transparencies with the emphasis that careful description of each transparency accompany each presentation into complete understanding by the participants. The Law Center on Law and the Deaf in Washington, D.C. along with Gallaudet College had some excellent resource materials and they are highly recommended for inserts and use at workshops dealing with Section 504.
