Forum 5.1 - Modifications and Accommodations
Modification and accommodations
Our church has built ramps both inside and outside. We have placed handicapped parking signs. We redesigned a bathroom for w/c accessibility. We have purchased large print hymnals and provide large print bulletins. We have hearing devices for the hard of hearing.
We need to have a list of interpreters. Our pulpit and choir loft are not accessible. Our upstairs classrooms are not accessible.
One nice thing about being a smaller church is that we only have one set of stairs *down* to offices and classrooms from the CLC. They are accessible by using the ramp outside, but there is no alternate to the stairs on the inside.
Sounds like we may have the same type of layout however we only have an outside ramp to the sanctuary. The added on education wing is fully accessible downstairs (maybe not easily or most effectively accessible, but flat and open accessible).
I would so like to completely reallocate all of our space for several reasons - one being accessibility - but I'm not quite brave enough yet!
