Accessibility Studies

CWU's Accessibility Studies Program pioneers preparation of the new Accessibility Coordinator position mandated by Policy #188

Central Washington University's new Accessibility Studies Program is the first in the state to focus on analyzing environments for their functionality so people of all levels of ability can participate. This is aligned with Policy #188, the new mandate that all state agencies in the State of Washington must have an Accessibility Coordinator and must produce an Accessibility Plan. 

Recently Dr. Naomi Jeffery Petersen, originator of the Accessibility Studies Program, was invited to Olympia to meet with Ryan Leisinger, Accessibility Coordinator for all state agencies. Their discussion included the alignment of the ASP curriculum with the competencies that the state expects accessibility coordinators to have.
