"Map Your Community's Usability: A New Tool to Empower Consumers"

What: This webcast was delivered on March 5, 2014. The webcast focused on the “CHEC,” or Community Health Environment Checklist, a new tool that offers a standardized way to measure the usability of sites in your community for people with disabilities. Then you can share that information with consumers through an online map.

Who: This information is recommended for any person interested in reporting or researching the usability of public spaces. This includes disability advocates, Center for Independent Living staff, occupational therapists and other rehabilitation professionals, social workers, public health workers, and others.
