Accessibility planning aids organizations to identify barriers and prioritize goals for removal. Accessibility planning also includes strategies to prevent new barriers from being created. Planning in advance or assessing existing conditions aids policymakers in their decision making process and budget appropriately once a strategic policy is in place.
Accessibility planning includes consultation on the built environment, information and communications, employment, customer service and transportation. Policy, practice and procedure in your organization may have systemic barriers. Staff, volunteers and third party representatives may pose attitudinal barriers and with proper guidance barriers can disappear.
