ABA ADA Building & Sites webinar
This webinar will review and clarify common questions on the ADA and ABA Accessibility Standards in new construction and alterations. More specifically, Access Board staff will address misinterpretations and confusion on requirements for accessible showers, curb ramps, elevator exceptions, signs, and assembly seating. Session participants are encouraged to share their own questions in advance of and during the session. There will be open dialogue during the webinar. The following is a sampling of anticipated questions that will be addressed: Can clear floor/ground space or turning space overlap other space requirements? Can tactile characters and visual characters be provided separately on different signs? Do the ADA and ABA Standards permit ramps to be portable after construction as an adaptation? Questions can be submitted in advance of the session or can be posed during the live webinar. This webinar will include video remote interpreting (VRI) and real-time captioning.
