    1. Title I requires employers with 15 or more employees to provide qualified individuals with disabilities an equal opportunity to benefit from the full range of employment-related opportunities available to others. For example, it prohibits discrimination in recruitment, hiring, promotions, training, pay, social activities, and other privileges of employment.
    1. The ADA has three titles: Title 1 applies to employment, Title 2 applies to state and local governments (including public colleges and universities) and Title 3 applies to places of public accommodations (including private colleges and universities).

      ADA's three titles and sections

    1. In the online classroom, all disabilities – whether readily evident or not – are in fact invisible and hidden.

      I've never thought of it this way before, but it's so true! This is one of the greatest deficits with online learning. Aside from the loss of social presence, it's hard to monitor and support disabilities without real, intentional listening and support.

    1. The ADA intimidation claim and the § 1983 claim lack any legal foundation and “the result is obvious.” Karam, 352 F.3d at 1195. The ADA intimidation claim filed under 42 U.S.C. § 12203(b) had an outcome that was clear at the time it was filed. Section 12203(b) states: “It shall be unlawful to coerce, intimidate, threaten, or interfere with any individual in the exercise or enjoyment of, or on account of his or her having exercised or enjoyed, or on account of his or her having aided or encouraged any other individual in the exercise or enjoyment of, any right granted or protected by this chapter. ” (emphasis added). By its own terms, protection under the ADA against intimidation does not extend to a plaintiff's attempts to exercise rights granted or protected by the IDEA—the basis of K.S.'s claim in this case. See Morse v. N. Coast Opportunities, Inc., 118 F.3d 1338, 1343 (9th Cir.1997) (“Because [Plaintiff's] § 1983 complaint against [Defendant] is completely barred by the terms of the statute, we find that her claim is ‘unreasonable’ and ‘meritless.’ ”).

      OH MAN - you cannot base an ADA "intimidation" claim based on exercise of IDEA rights! - is this true for retaliation claims too??
