Accessible Vacations (I): Twelve US Cities

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

Disability is a reality for many people and ageing and becoming infirm is a reality for almost all the rest of us. However, being elderly or disabled needn’t stop us enjoying our cultural heritage, whether it’s viewing paintings, watching musicals or climbing a mountain. We just need to know where to go to make these activities possible, and how cultural sites can help support elderly and disabled people.
Accessible Vacations is primarily designed for people who are elderly and disabled and their families. It is also designed for public libraries and those who work with people who are elderly and disabled.
Importantly, Accessible Vacations is based on a model of access developed from recent research in this field , and describes five categories of access:
1)Visiting with friends and family
2)Education available
3)Information available
4)Access to spaces
5)Ease of mobility – both getting there and getting around

Accessible Vacations books will include two sections:

Access Services
o This includes chapters on accessible technologies, audio descriptions, special classes and performances, sign languages, support for people with learning disabilities, how to support people in museums, travel advise to and within cities and national parks, and practical facilities such as toilets and cafes in cultural sites.

Cultural Sites by City
o There will be a chapter for twelve accessible major US cities, with listings of facilities for museums and theaters. N.B. These books will start by focusing on the most popular cities, however in future editions I plan to expand these books to cover cultural sites in all US states.
