Architectural Barriers to Physically Disabled Persons in Wisconsin's Vocational, Technical, and Adult Education System. Final Report.
Wisconsin Univ. - Stout, Menomonie. Center for Vocational, Technical and Adult Education.
The project was designed to determine what architectural barriers to physically disabled persons existed in Wisconsin's vocational, technical, and adult education system's institutions. A checklist based on the American Institute of Architects' recommendations was developed and completed for one school in each district to determine the presently existing architectural barriers, including entrances and exits, elevators, fire escapes, restroom facilities, ramps, and corridors. In addition, existing barriers in classrooms, laboratories, learning centers, food service, and recreation areas were identified. Finally, a checklist rating scale was developed to determine the campus modifications required in order to offer programs to persons with physical disabilities. Chapter 2 is concerned with the methods and procedures used to develop the architectural barrier checklist, the checklist guide, and the population of the project. Chapters 3 and 4 contain project results and recommendations. (NJ)
