Abstract

The process of finding quality community outings that are accessible for individuals with disabilities can be time-consuming for employees at Seven Hills. To assist the staff, we created a website that provides detailed accessibility information about local venues. We assessed these venues by creating and using a checklist of available accommodations for a variety of disabilities. The webpage allows employees to search venues by available accommodations, or to simply view venues by category, e.g. museums, zoos, or theaters. We also made recommendations for employees to provide feedback and update the webpage as they go on community outings in the future.
