As this guide states in the introduction: “It is intended to give your organization information about [Americans with Disabilities Act] compliance, along with tools that make compliance possible — tools that you can use and adapt according to your size, activities and resources.”

The guide includes in-depth information about implementing accessibility and centering disability inclusion across the board, from facilities to communications to events. It also addresses disability etiquette and organizational policy considerations, and recommends avenues for meaningful action. Additionally, the guide has several helpful templates and tip sheets to support efforts moving forward.
