Key Words and Terms

How do I know my efforts toward creating an inclusive environment have been successful?

The successful creation of an inclusive service environment is sometimes difficult to evaluate since it is not easily quantified. Moreover, just because your program might have a number of participants with disabilities, it is not necessarily inclusive. This section contains suggested indicators for you to use in developing an evaluation plan around inclusion.

What are some ways I can evaluate my progress?

Ask yourself, your program, and your participants- with and without disabilities- and your disability partners:

Environment: Spirit of Inclusion

Environment: Architectural

Environment: Communication

Environment: Alternate Formats

Environment: Requests and Modifications of Policies, Procedures, and Practices

Administration and Management

Collateral Material (brochures, flyers, applications, and websites)
