Kevin Williams, Director of the Civil Rights Legal Program for Colorado Cross-Disability Coalition (CCDC), and a guest speaker in this course said, “to treat people with disabilities equally, you have to do something different.”

 

Public places and businesses open to the public need to do something different to comply with ADA standards so that people with disabilities have full access and enjoyment of public places.

 

In this training, you will learn about resources such as tax incentives, community resources, examples of accommodations, and ultimately discover that adhering to the ADA isn’t just good business practice, it is the law!
