ADA Self-Evaluations and Transition Plans
Did you know that every government agency and public entity in the country is required to perform ADA self-evaluations of their current facilities and have a Transition Plan in place?
Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) specifically addresses making public transportation, services, and programs accessible to persons with disabilities. Therefore, designing and constructing facilities for public use that are not accessible by people with disabilities constitutes discrimination. Performing a self-evaluation enables you to pinpoint facilities, programs, and services that must be modified or relocated to comply with the ADA and, ultimately, develop an appropriate Transition Plan to address these non-compliant issues.
