What's New in School Nutrition Webinar - Meal Accommodation for Medical Needs and Other Requests
Meal Accommodation for Medical Needs and Other Requests
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Amendments Act of 2008 made important changes to the meaning and interpretation of the term "disability" under the ADA and under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. After the passage of the Act, most physical and mental impairments will constitute a disability. This webinar will address the impact to School Nutrition programs, processes, and documentation. Possibly a preview of a revised Request for Meal Accommodation form will be included. A new version of the Accommodating Children with Disabilities in the School Meal Programs has been released and may be accessed on the USDA website via this link.
