    Weathering an Uncertain Academic Climate: Balancing Technical Standards and Reasonable Accommodations in Physical Therapy Education Programs

    Time: 8:00 am-11:00 am (See Program for Room)

    Speakers: Elisa M. Zuber, PT, PhD; Lucien Capone, III, JD; Eric Coley, PT, DPT

    CEUs: 0.3 (3 contact hours/CCUs)

    Federal law protects students from discrimination on the basis of disability and protects education programs from unreasonable accommodations. Physical therapy education programs include technical standards or essential qualifications as a basis for progression through the curriculum, but a student request for accommodations can be at odds with technical standards and cause a fundamental alteration or place an undue burden on a program. This session will provide an overview of the Americans with Disabilities Act, address the dilemma of reasonable accommodation versus undue burden, and focus on the issue of learning disabilities in PT students, particularly those disabilities that arise after the student enters a program.

    Weathering an Uncertain Academic Climate: Eating Disorders and Other Self-Injurious Behaviors - Impact on Academic Performance

    Time: 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm (See Program for Room)

    Speakers: Venita Lovelace-Chandler, PT, PhD, PCS

    CEUs: .15 (1.5 contact hours/CCUs)

    Self-injurious behaviors, eating disorders, and other unhealthy practices are present in college-aged students, from associate degree level to graduate/professional degree students. Many such behaviors are associated with inadequate coping strategies in stressful situations. The stressful nature of a professional education or an intensive technical program may exacerbate negative coping behaviors in students. This session will teach physical therapist and physical therapist assistant educators to recognize self-injurious behaviors seen in college students and avoid problematic situations that may occur when students are not assisted in identifying resources for improved coping.

    Weathering an Uncertain Academic Climate: Behaviors of Students in Unsuccessful Clinical Education Experiences

    Time: 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm (See Program for Room)

    Speakers: Kay Tasso, PT, PhD, PCS

    CEUs: .15 (1.5 contact hours/CCUs)

    Students with successful academic performance in the classroom and laboratory portions of a physical therapy education program may demonstrate affective behaviors in the clinical setting that contribute to failure of the clinical education experience. This session will describe research findings related to behaviors of students who fail clinical education experiences and propose future research for identifying and addressing adverse behaviors prior to the clinical experience.
