Thursday October 29, 2:15pm – 3:45pm
Come spend some time outside walking and looking at features of the sidewalks and street crossings from a different perspective. Learn through experience how to assess features of the pedestrian environment for accessibility for and usability by older adults and people with disabilities. Small groups will assess sidewalks and intersections for accessibility for people with disabilities using a path of travel checklist, and discuss good and bad features and potential solutions to problems. This activity will take place out-of-doors, so please dress for the weather and for walking.
Attending the morning session, which can be found here, will be helpful but not essential.
