THIS PRERECORDED SESSION WILL BE AVAILABLE SHORTLY. PLEASE CHECK BACK TO VIEW.
According to the CDC, around 26% of adult Americans have a disability. What does it mean to make spaces that go beyond basic access? As a society and a design profession, we are long overdue for updated design practices that help us meet the spatial needs of our neurodiverse and physically disabled community members, not just so they can participate in work, but so that they can experience JOY. We all deserve access to cafes, restaurants, bars, shops, entertainment venues, parks, and other spaces that are essential for our personal and community health. In this live, one hour course, we'll highlight our top 8 practices that help designers take a space "above and beyond ADA." This course was developed by a disabled designer, in partnership with the Community Vision Assistive Technology Lab, a non-profit that helps connect disabled people with awesome accessibility and communication tools. All of our recommendations are based off outreach with diverse disabled people. We'll share snippets of responses to our survey, and hear directly from our disabled interviewees via video and audio clips.
