Session Description:

Creating inclusive websites takes into consideration development, design, and content for the user. Five of the primary types of disabilities (physical, hearing, visual, cognitive and speech, and combinations there of) along with the ways people use websites makes for a complex effort to communicate. While CSU does have an accessibility policy and a brand policy, we work to create websites that extend to our CSU community in line with our Principles of Community.

Session Description:
The opportunities for dogs to assist human health and wellbeing are increasingly expanding. Whether in a therapy role, emotional support role, or service role, dogs can fulfill many purposes for an individual. However, it can be confusing to keep up with the terminology. From a disability advocacy standpoint, it is important for the public to understand the important roles that these dogs play. For example, knowing what animals are permitted where (and why) and what you are legally allowed to ask an individual about their dog’s training, behavior, or role is important to prevent discrimination and promote inclusive practices. This talk will go over the ins and outs of therapy dogs, service dogs, and emotional support dogs including definitions, legal statuses, how to interact with these dogs in public, and how to support individuals with service or emotional support dogs on campus.
