 Full Description: 
This publication was developed by the North Carolina Office on Disability and Health in collaboration with the Center for Universal Design. It provides information on how organizations can make their meetings more accessible for people with disabilities. Click on the "Web Links" tab above to download the entire 68-page guide for free from the Center on Universal Design's website.

From the "Purpose of This Guide" section of the publication:

"The guide focuses on small and last-minute meetings to make sure that a variety of participants are included in all aspects of organizational life. An environment that is accessible, functional, and safe benefits everyone, regardless of age or level of ability. This principle, known as Universal Design, serves as the basis for the information presented in this publication. The guide describes the benefits of providing both physical and communication access...

This guide is not designed to be exhaustive and therefore cannot provide all the specifications that might be needed to ensure full access. However, in an effort to provide this information, the guide does include resources, illustrations and a checklist to aid meeting planners in creating an inclusive event."

Information taken from the guide downloaded from the Center on Universal Design's website on 4/29/11 (www.fpg.unc.edu/~ncodh/pdfs/MeetingGuide.pdf)
