Mobility devices under the ADA: free audio conference Aug. 21


News Release

TERRE HAUTE — The WILL Center will host a free audio conference on Tuesday, Aug. 21, on how the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) applies to "other power-driven mobility devices," some examples include Segways®, golf cars and all-terrain vehicles.

Covered entities must consider whether or not they can make "reasonable modifications" in their policies and procedures to allow individuals who use these devices to enter their premises. In this session, participants will learn the factors that go into determining whether or not it is "reasonable," and what is happening nationally to address this issue.

The free audio conference is scheduled 2 to 3:30 p.m. in the WILL Center at 1 Dreiser Square (west of Third and Cruft streets) in Terre Haute. For more information or to request an accommodation, contact Marcia Jackson at (812) 298-9455 or Marcia@thewillcenter.org.
