Integrating Accessibility (2 hours - 2 ADA Credits)

03:30 PM - 05:30 PM

This 2-hour webinar will help architects improve their designs by learning strategies for incorporating access early in the planning phase.

In 1990 Kristi founded Accessology Too, LLC which is a national leader in providing accessibility consulting services and is one of the largest U.S. firms dedicated solely to accessibility and access issues. Since its founding, Accessology has worked closely with the Department of Justice and the U.S. Access Board to remain knowledgeable and adept with the constant changes that occur regarding ADA guidelines.
