    This session will go beyond the minimum requirements of the 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design for recreation facilities, including considerations for surfacing, site amenities, site arrival points, outdoor inclusive fitness equipment, play areas, and much more. Attendees will develop a better understanding of the features that make a park or play area inclusive for everyone.

    Sponsored by PlayCore

    Ensuring inclusion, regardless of age or ability, to independently participate in a wide range of recreation facilities is the goal of the 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design. Adopted by the Department of Justice (DOJ), the standards establish minimum accessibility requirements for all new construction or alterations of existing recreational facilities after March 15, 2012. The standards apply to state and local government facilities covered by Title II and places of public accommodation covered by Title III. This session will go beyond the minimum requirements of the 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design for recreation facilities including considerations for surfacing, site amenities, site arrival points, outdoor inclusive fitness equipment, play areas, and much more. Attendees will develop a better understanding of the features that make a park or play area inclusive for everyone. The session will provide tools and resources to help evaluate the level of compliance of existing recreation facilities.

    Learning objectives:

    • Outline at least two minimum standards for accessible play areas required under the 2010 ADA Standards. 
    • List at least three key considerations to create accessible routes to and within play and recreation destinations.
    • Evaluate a variety of park amenities and identify barriers that may restrict people with disabilities from being able to fully participate in the provided recreational opportunities.
    • Identify helpful resources to obtain additional information or to utilize when evaluating new and existing play and recreation environments.

    Professional licensing examination uses an industry standard known as High Level Testing. This is a method of testing that requires the application of knowledge rather than knowledge recall itself. It is the utilization of knowledge, in critical thinking situations, to resolve problems. This webinar adapts Bloom’s Taxonomy to outline the basic levels of comprehension that are necessary to utilize knowledge in the application of “skills and abilities” in Landscape Architecture.

    The Live Event has been rescheduled for 06/04/2024 at 3:00 PM (EDT).  

    Professional licensing examination uses an industry standard known as High Level Testing. This is a method of testing that requires the application of knowledge rather than knowledge recall itself. It is the utilization of knowledge, in critical thinking situations, to resolve problems. This webinar adapts Bloom’s Taxonomy to outline the basic levels of comprehension that are necessary to utilize knowledge in the application of “skills and abilities” in Landscape Architecture.

    CLARB, in creating the L.A.R.E., has adopted a taxonomy of measurable verbs to define the extent of the knowledge, skills, and abilities that are being tested. The L.A.R.E. is testing for what a “minimally competent landscape architect needs to know so as to protect public health, safety and welfare”. This is the basis of the licensure laws in the United States and Canada. It is to your advantage to recognize that the vast majority of exam items are written to specifically test for an application level of proficiency. Therefore, memory recall type items (e.g., Jeopardy) are only minimally addressed. These are often in the form of Multiple Choice items, which are being used to a lesser extent on the L.A.R.E..

    On this basis, it stands to reason that you must prepare in a way that encourages critical thinking. You MUST be able to apply as well as analyze and evaluate relevant information if you are to successfully complete the exam.

    Note: This webinar will run between 2 - 2.5 hours
