Special Needs / Accommodations
BHTEN routinely has deaf or hard of hearing participants requiring interpreters at BHTEN sponsored training events. BHTEN strives to make sure staff are notified, in a timely manner, that a deaf or hard of hearing participant will be attending a specified training. With proper notice reasonable accommodations can be made to assure accessibility to BHTEN training events.
BHTEN training announcements delineate how to contact the BHTEN Registrar or Clerical Assistant during the registration process that a given participant will need interpreter services (or has any other special needs). The appropriate BHTEN Training Facilitator will be notified and services will be requested and confirmed prior to the event.
To request interpreter services or any other specific accommodations, please contact Sheyel Rorie, Registrar, at 215-923-2116 ext.270
For more information and/or the full policy please contact Dennis Fisher, Program Director, at (215) 923-2116, ext. 285.
BHTEN's training spaces, and the building in which we are housed, are wheelchair accessible. We have accessible bathrooms as well.
We have microphones available, as needed, if presenters are soft spoken or trainees need additional amplification.
If you are in need of larger-print materials, please let us know in advance of your training session.
Please contact us if you have any other accessibility related questions.
