New Course at CATEA — Home Modifications: Processes and Tools
Appropriate home modifications can help a person with a disability perform daily activities. They can also enable people who are aging into a disability to be able to stay in their homes longer. But what types of accommodations are possible? How can you determine what solutions will best fit a particular situation? What resources exist to help with the process?
The Center for Assistive Technology and Environmental Access (CATEA) at Georgia Tech will be offering its course: Home Modifications: Processes and Tools starting September 7, 2011. It will run as a series of three webcasts on subsequent Wednesdays, from 12:00-2:00 PM (Eastern).
The course provides in-depth discussion about modifications that can be constructed, installed, or implemented to enhance an individual’s safety and function in the home environment. This course provides:
- Overview of functional barriers commonly experienced in homes;
- Legal and policy issues that affect provision of services, and accessibility technology;
- Universal design strategies to improve performance of daily activities;
- Resources for assessing, identifying and implementing modification needs.
This beginning-to-intermediate-level course is appropriate for people providing rehabilitation services as well as for people designing or building living spaces. Continuing education credits will be provided. Visit Home Modifications: Processes and Tools for further information about this course.
We will extend the early registration rate of $266 until the end of this week (August 26th). If you would like to take advantage of this offer, please contact Monique Waddell ([email protected]) for assistance with registration.
