Liability has been a concern for those providing orientation and mobility services, and the topic of many discussions. With the onset of COVID-19, coupled with critical and long-standing shortage of trained O&M Specialists, remote instruction via multiple technologies has raised new and serious questions about liability for the O&M Specialist. With learner safety as a prime responsibility of the O&M Specialist, this webinar, presented by Mary Tellefson, Sarah Moreau and William Koehler, will explore the tenets of risk assessment, safety supervision, and describe how scope of practice affects potential liability for that specialist. Ramifications for the O&M Specialist and the use of untested technology and devices will be discussed as well.

Member webinars are offered to members of AER. For information on AER membership please visit our membership page.

Also being offered on October 1, 2020 from 3:00-4:30 pm Eastern.
