A is for Access. A is for Ability. A is for All...

After spending two days at Universal Design Summit 6 in St Louis, three simple words pretty much sum up what Universal Design is all about.

Working from some basic definitions from Merriam-Webster, you can see for yourself.

A is for ACCESS

access: 
a :permission, liberty, or ability to enter, approach, or pass to and from a place or to approach or communicate with a person or thing
b :freedom or ability to obtain or make use of something
c :a way or means of entering or approaching 
d :the act or an instance of accessing something

is for ABILITY

ability: 
the quality or state of being able

is for ALL

all:
every member or individual component of

Universal design provides ACCESS that supports ABILITY and improves the world for ALL.
The benefits are clear.

Thanks to Starkloff Disability Institute for inviting us to be a part of it--we will see you next time!
