AIACC Accessibility Course #aeck-A502: Accessibility 2019: Design Beyond ADA & Compliance
Presented by: Peter Slatin, AIA
AIA/CES (HSW) Learning Units: 1.0 Hours
This course complies with California licensure requirements for accessibility (SB 1608 and California Business and Professions Code Section 5600.05), the Texas BOE requirement related to barrier-free design, and provides essential information about accessibility requirements applicable in most states.
In this 60-minute course, Peter Slatin, AIA, draws on his experience navigating as a blind person around New York City and discusses how our environment needs to respond to a growing number of people with a variety of disabilities and impairments: vision, hearing, mobility, awareness and memory. Peter also discusses the Elements of Service he created, which consists of Observe, Ask, Listen, Respond and Follow Through, and reminds us that compliance should be the floor, not the ceiling, for addressing accessibility in design.
With his guide dog by his side, Peter addresses some social misconceptions. “It’s important to remember that a person with a disability, for the most part, isn’t feeling afflicted. They are dealing with their challenges, they do it every day.”
This course is presented in high definition video and is available on computers and most smart phones, tablets and mobile devices. Viewers can also download a course transcript.
