Abstract: The Disability and Business Technical Assistance Center (DBTAC) Northwest presents this checklist to be used as a guide to increase awareness and plan for the removal of architectural and communication barriers which prevent full access to buildings and facilities by people with disabilities. It may be used to survey an entire facility or specific areas and components. This checklist is not a substitute for federal accessibility guidelines and/or the appropriate state and local building codes.
Descriptor Terms: ACCESS GUIDES, ACCOMMODATION, ADA, ARCHITECTURAL BARRIERS, COMMUNICATION SKILLS, INFORMATION RESOURCES.
