ADA Audit, Transition Plan, and Policy Statement for Higher Education. Manual and Workbook.
Shepard, Ira Michael; And Others
Designed to assist public institutions in meeting the many requirements and deadlines of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, this handbook provides a blueprint for coordinating ADA compliance and conducting the required self-evaluations. Chapter 1 reviews policy implications of compliance with the ADA, discusses the importance of the legislation to institutions, and provides sample policy statements. Chapter 2 provides an overview of requirements and deadlines for compliance for ADA Titles I, II, and III, while chapter 3 describes the first phase of conducting ADA self-evaluations, including the creation of an ADA task force, gathering input from the community and institution, the role of ADA Coordinators, and the audit process. Chapter 4 discusses the second phase of ADA evaluations, which includes setting priorities and developing a transition plan, and reviews the differences between program and facilities access; structural renovations planning; and completing the self-evaluation. Chapter 5 describes the final phase--ensuring compliance and related budget considerations. Chapter 6 describes the process of conducting an employment audit, chapter 7 discusses audits of programs and services other than employment, and chapter 8 highlights the features of facilities audits. Chapters 6 through 8 provide sample audits, forms, and/or worksheets for each type of audit discussed. Finally, chapter 9 presents a sample transition plan. (MAB)
