Under a settlement with the U.S. Department of Justice, Teachers Test Prep (TTP), Inc., a California company that offers prep classes for teacher and other credentialing examinations, will ensure that people who are deaf and hard of hearing can access its online and in-person sessions.
The settlement resolves allegations that the company violated Title III of the Americans With Disabilities Act by not providing its online courses and one-on-one tutoring sessions in a manner accessible to individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing.
The settlement requires TTP to provide closed-captioning for its online courses and to modify courses to ensure they are accessible to people with disabilities, which may include providing appropriate auxiliary aids and services.
TTP also must pay $5,000 to the person who initiated the complaint and provide a specific test-preparation course to the plaintiff at no charge.
