The list of speakers at the 2017 WSCA Annual Conference and Tradeshow is long and distinguished.  Each week leading up the event, we will be presenting a profile of each of these speakers and their programs in the weekly newsletter. 

 

In one of the opening sessions on Friday afternoon, October 27, Conference attendees will experience Respectful Interactions: Disability Language and Etiquette for Chiropractic Professionals, presented by Miranda Levy, MA, CAC of the Northwest ADA Center.

In recent months, many WSCA members have been asking about the Americans with Disabilities Act, and specifically, what accommodations are chiropractors required to provide to patients.  While all chiropractors want to provide the best care possible, patients with special needs sometimes present a challenge.  This presentation will be specifically tailored to chiropractic profession, and will give an overview of the ADA along with discussion about interacting with patients and family members/partners with disabilities. The speaker will review interaction with a variety of disabilities and will address specific topics such as effective communication, reasonable accommodations, and issues relating to service animals. This is an interactive presentation wherein the speaker encourages questions and participation throughout.
