This presentation discusses creating accessibility for people with disabilities through design, using examples from the Beijing and Vancouver Paralympics. Although building codes and disabled guidelines are becoming more stringent, they don't cover all aspects - especially for team sports.

The second part of the presentation looks at accessibility at the program level and presents the All Abilities Welcome toolkit, which emphasizes adjusting attitudes not architecture.

Presented at the Parks and Recreation Ontario 2010 Educational Forum and National Showcase.
