Undivided: School campus accessibility checklist

How do I make sure my child’s school campus is accessible for them?

Parent Question
Sep. 15, 2022

Orientation and mobility therapist Kristin Zottoli says she likes thinking from big (outdoor spaces) to small (bathroom stalls). To make sure a student can access everything they need, break down the activities of daily living in a sequential way. From washing their hands to getting their snack bag out of their locker or cubby, is each element accessible, and if not, how will the school make the necessary adaptations?

For an easy-to-follow list of all the aspects of school you should look at on a campus tour, see our Campus Orientation Checklist.
