By completing this four-part workshop, participants will improve their understanding of how to provide quality services for people with disabilities and activity limitations. Each part of the workshop consists of a tutorial (accessible in video, audio, or written note format) and a quiz.

Part 1 addresses the question, “Who are people with disabilities and activity limitations?”

Part 2 provides general information about the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 and other discrimination principles of the law.

Part 3 explores personal attitudes and beliefs toward “disability” and how they affect interaction with people with disabilities and activity limitations.

Part 4 identifies several access issues, involving physical, communication, and medical equipment access.

An opening Welcome section also provides specific goals and objectives for the workshop, and a closing Wrap-up section offers suggestions on how organizations can take the next step in “making it happen” to provide quality services for people with disabilities and activity limitations.

At the end of each part, workshop participants will complete a brief quiz before moving to the next part. After the successful completion of the final quiz, a final assessment test must be completed for eligible participants to receive certification of workshop completion.
