Historic Announcement from DOJ and HHS
Monday, 10 August 2015 14:06

Today the U. S. Department of Justice's Civil Rights Division together with the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services' Office of Civil Rights and Administration for Children and Families issued joint technical assistance about the applicability of Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act to the administration of child welfare programs, activities, and services. This technical assistance includes a cover letter to stakeholders and an explanatory document that contains a question and answer section. This technical assistance is intended to help child welfare agencies and family courts understand their obligations under Federal law to ensure that parents and prospective parents with disabilities receive equal treatment and equal access to parenting opportunities. In many ways, this is a culmination of the work TLG has engaged in and promoted for over 30 years.

TLG located at the Ed Roberts Campus

Through the Looking Glass (TLG) is located at the Ed Roberts Campus, located at the Ashby BART Station in Berkeley, CA.

The 86,000 square foot Ed Roberts Campus honors the life and work of Ed Roberts, an early leader in the independent living movement. Ed wore many hats during his lifetime, one of them being Chair of TLG's Board of Directors. The Ed Roberts Campus is the world's foremost disability rights service, advocacy, education, training, and policy center. To find out more about the Ed Roberts Campus, please see the website: http://www.edrobertscampus.org.

In addition to offering TLG much needed administrative and clinical space, our facilities house TLG's Early Head Start Center, integrating infants, toddlers and preschool children with and without disabilities. This EHS Center allows TLG to provide its own center-based services to children and families as another option in addition to our home-based services. The EHS Center also serves as a training site for childcare workers, early intervention and clinical interns, with an emphasis on training individuals with personal disability experience. TLG's EHS Center at the ERC is the first such center to have emerged from the independent living movement. As with the rest of the ERC, our EHS Center serves as a model for national practice and universal design.
