Level Playing Field Presents

Beyond Building Code – Building Barrier-Free from Lived Experience

Tuesday, October 17, 2017

__________

Creating universally accessible environments can be challenging. This seminar will go beyond the Alberta Building Code and the Barrier Free Guidelines to look at a day in the life of a person with a disability. It will address challenges persons with a variety of disabilities face regularly and propose practical solutions. The seminar will explain important aspects of barrier-free design and address why certain aspects of the code are not sufficient.

The seminar will be presented by Darby Lee Young. Darby is a former para-alpine ski racer who was born with mild cerebral palsy. She has over a decade of experience working as an accessibility strategist and is an expert in universal design. Darby will provide best practice solutions and an in-depth discussion about true accessibility. In addition, several mobility devices will be made available for participants to view and try. Participants will gain a strong understanding of how they can ensure their designs are inclusive and welcoming for everyone.

Full day 7:30 – 5:00

Breakfast, lunch, and snacks included

Cost is $325 +GST

6.5 AAA or IDC points will be awarded at the end of the day

For more information please contact Darby Lee Young at 403.612.7970 or access@levelplayingfield.ca


"With 16 years of experience providing solutions for students diagnosed with hearing and learning concerns I consider myself to be well versed if not an expert in the field of accessibility. Which is why I was so delighted and surprised by the presentation I attended by Darby Lee Young at A4LE this year. Not only was it entertaining with great real-world examples I also learned a tremendous amount. Darby’s passion and dedication to changing the world shines through and I highly recommend attending anytime she presents."
