1. Hello! This is your 30- Second Inclusion Training Common Areas Brought to you by the Office of Faith Based andCommunity Initiatives (OFBCI). Click here to begin
2. People with all kinds of disabilities need to beable to function at an organization as anyone else would. Which accommodation is the best? Members with disabilities are required, just like everyone else, to know where the permanent rooms are after three weeks of being assigned at a host site. Members with disabilities are seated in separate areas and have to provide desks for themselves. Members with disabilities have their needs anticipated. There are signs for all permanent rooms and alternatives to permanent seating.
3. Good Effort BUT Please Try Again While everyone is being treated equally, this option is not accommodating for anyone. Permanent rooms/doors likerestrooms and exits need to be labeled. The labeling needs toalso comply with the appropriate requirements for accessible signage.
4. Come on… You can do it!Nice try but this is, however, not inclusive. Alternatives to fixed seating need to be provided. Work spaces like desks need to also be provided and can be adjustable in order to reasonably accommodate.
5. Great Job! In this case, this is the best answer. Members, and everyone else, need to be able to have permanent signs designating restrooms and exits. Common paths need to be at least 36 inches wide and freefrom obstacles. Where seating is at tables, clearance needs to be 19” deep, 27” high, 30” wide, with adequate space between people seated at tables (32” minimum) for wheelchair passage, in a reasonable proportion of the common area.
