Accessibility 2017: Accessibility in the Public Realm -- Spend a Day in My Wheelchair
Presented by: Letrice Sherrillo, 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, Letrice Sherrillo, AIA, a recent wheelchair user, takes us through downtown San Francisco as she navigates hospitality, retail and public spaces. Viewers will gain a better understanding about how accessible spaces in the public realm often fall short of servicing the requirements of people with different levels of abilities.
As Letrice suggests, “Rent a wheelchair for just one day and your perspective will change, the way you design, not only for accessible design to meet ADA codes, but for overall Universal Design.”
