Special Needs Form

Phi Theta Kappa is committed to providing equal access for all participants to PTK Catalyst.

Any attendee requiring accommodation(s) in order to participate in PTK Catalyst must complete a special needs request by March 23, 2018. Specific requests can also be made via email at convention@ptk.org.

Reasonable dietary, physical, cultural or religious accommodations will be provided upon request if Phi Theta Kappa is given adequate time to secure the requested services, the services are available within the requested time period, and the requested accommodation does not result in an undue hardship as defined by the Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) (“action requiring significant difficulty or expense”), or as otherwise limited by ADA.


Background
The ADA is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination based on disability. It sets forth minimum requirements for accessibility of facilities to ensure that someone with a disability has the same access to programs and services, public accommodations, employment, transportation, and telecommunication. The ADA requires the removal of physical and communication barriers to allow someone with a disability an equal opportunity to participate. While there is no way to explain all aspects of this law within the scope of this document, it is important to consider the spirit in which this law was written and make every effort to remove barriers and prevent discrimination.


 

Please indicate any dietary, physical, cultural or religious needs we need to know in order to make your conference experience pleasurable.

 

Each individual who has special needs should complete and submit this form; do not use a single form for multiple attendees. Special needs requests must be submitted by March 23, 2018.
