Transition Planning: The Dynamic Process for Parks, Recreation and Tourism

Wednesday, July 10, 2013


Both Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act require state, local and federal entities to develop Transition Plans for the removal of architectural and communication barriers to participation by people with disabilities. But what does a Transition Plan look like? More importantly, what should be the process for developing and administering a successful Transition Plan? Join John Wodatch, former Disability Section Chief at the Department of Justice, and a guest panel of Accessibility Coordinators from park and recreation entities. Learn how each Transition Plan is as unique as the entity developing it, what they used as guiding principles for prioritizing barrier removal, and other secrets to successful implementation.
