Extensive list with some things that might not normally be thought about - like lobby decorations that could be an issue for mobility. The guidelines for the buttons and functioning of the doors are useful.

Very nicely written resource. There were a couple of things I knew about from my OT 220 class because of the stimulation of using a wheelchair around the campus along with other material I learned in this class. However, I still found this resource beneficial because it widened my perspective of elevators being accessible and what to look for to be declared as being accessible.

This is a great resource. It has a lot of information on accessibility in elevators. Many people don't think about elevators as needing accessibility updates because they think that elevators are already made for those who cannot use the stairs. I think this is a great resource that gives extensive information.

Disability is part of the natural diversity of human life. It touches all of us, whether through our own individual experience or that of a family member, neighbor, friend or colleague. As such, we all have a role in—and benefit to gain from—advancing equality for people with disabilities in all sectors of society, including the workplace.
