Program Description

It has been 30 years since the passage of the ADA; its standards and requirements have been refined by new design standards, Department of Justice regulations, Federal investigations and settlements, and court case decisions. Is your knowledge up to date? Has your access competency advanced? This interactive workshop will focus on accessibility standards, guidelines, and requirements under the ADA, the Rehabilitation Act, model codes, and various state laws, including what the future of accessibility could look like and will incorporate questions from attendees in the discussion.

The one-day intermediate-to-advanced workshop, 'Fair Housing,' complements this program and covers similar federal accessibility isses in a residential context. Enjoy a 10% discount off tuition when you register for both.

Read Full Description

Participants in this program will discuss with the instructors how to apply requirements and guidelines to the tens of millions of buildings, facilities, programs, and services they cover. With an aging population that represents a huge market for accessible facilities and programs, interest in compliance with the ADA and other access standards is continuing to grow throughout the country. The courts are helping to define how to apply each of the laws as well. Instructors will discuss how these cases are progressing and what can be learned from some of the most prominent ones. Participants will hone their skills at interpreting and applying both the old and the new requirements so that they can respond appropriately to users, clients, attorneys, and the courts as needed.

With the ADA obligations and interpretations as the structural framework for the class, requirements of other standards will be introduced, compared, and explained. This highly interactive workshop with six top instructors will look in detail at trending issues and explore best practices and universal design concepts that improve usability for everyone. This dynamic approach will mix presentations group exercises to analyze and discuss how to apply some of the new requirements.
