Knowing the difference between Service Animals and Emotional Support Animals
We will define and discuss the SA/ESA dichotomy and its implications on process and policy in post-secondary accommodations.
Presenter: Dr. Jane Jarrow
Jane Jarrow is the Founder and President of Disability Access Information and Support (DAIS). For more than two decades, Jane has provided technical assistance and professional development activities to various segments of the higher education community surrounding issues of accommodation and support for students with disabilities.
