Module 3: Screen 1
Building Elements Designed for Children's Use Objectives
After completing this module you will be able to:
- Use the appendix to identify the appropriate age group for a building
element and apply the criteria for that age range
- Assess the "predominant user" of a building element and apply ADAAG
- Apply appropriate ADAAG guidance covering water closets and toilet
stalls used primarily by children
- Apply appropriate ADAAG guidance on approach to drinking fountains,
lavatories, and fixed counters and tables used by children in age groups
3 and 4; 5 through 8; and 9 through 12
Building elements that children use are covered by the ADA.
Although these guidelines have not yet been adopted as ADA standards,
they provide useful guidance on complying with the accessibility mandate
that architects must satisfy.
