When is an adjustment reasonable in education? That's the question we'll be answering in our next webinar! Join us on March 28 from 1pm to hear from Rick Boffa, Manager, Equitable Learning Services at RMIT University as he: -defines the term reasonable adjustment; -provides a simple formula to help you determine when an adjustment is reasonable/unreasonable; and, -provides some case studies for discussion. As with all ADCET webinars, this will be live captioned and recorded, with the captioned video to be made available on the ADCET website. Rick's career has spanned almost 30 years across State and Commonwealth Government's, community and education sectors and has involved working in many diverse areas including disability, health and aged care services, project management, business administration and development, and more. As a person with a disability, Rick has a deep and personal understanding of issues and practicalities which impact on individuals with specific needs, and their families, and believes this perspective gives him a unique and significant insight into service provision to diverse and vulnerable client groups. We hope you can join us! Register now! [image: a man in a blue shirt sitting in a wheelchair, with the Sydney Harbour Bridge and a cruise ship in the background]
