Design with Disabled People Now: Including Disabled People in the Design Process - 1.0 PDH (LA CES/HSW)

There are over 1 billion disabled people globally, yet we rarely include the disabled community in the design process. Through this session, we will learn directly from three disabled-identifying experts to become more inclusive designers, with and beyond the ADA Standards, to create a more equitable and accessible public realm.

Please complete a brief evaluation of this Online Learning presentation.

Learning Objectives:
  • Learn how to challenge the dominant worldview of the medical model of disability, and switch to a social model view of disability and the built environment.
  • Learn how to include disabled people in the design process by learning from disabled experts, come to an understanding of the ADA Standards and Universal Design, and discover more resources.
  • Learn how to include disabled people in community engagements and stakeholder meetings by making events more accessible and by trusting in and learning from lived experiences over assumptions.
  • Learn how to include disabled people in access audits of the built environment and consciously make the switch from inaccurate “sensitivity studies” that do not include disabled people.
