Stepping Thru Accessible Environments As We Age

Accessible Environments As We Age is not so much a technical seminar but rather issues to consider when making design decisions...

This is a program designed to enhance your design knowledge of ADA and accessibility issues while satisfying three (3) hours of California State Requirements for Licensing.  You will gain a general overview of what elements in our environment whether at work, play, or home that can be included now for us to easily age in place later. Learn about different design considerations whether color, light, or accessibility parameters that can be addressed within our built environment to not only allow us to age in place but to also allow others to visit us whether they have issues concerning accessibility or aging.

SUBJECTS COVERED
Design Considerations for Aging population and accessible environments; Turning Clearances & Clear Floor Space - a topic that has often been misunderstood; Accessible Route Clearances

LEARNING OBJECTIVES
  • Review design issues for implementation now regarding Aging In Place in the future
  • Overview the different disabilities and how we can voluntarily accommodate for them
  • Understand how to integrate access to allow for visitability
  • Gain 3 hours towards State requirements for Architectural license renewal
