We provide the following services: Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) site surveys, customized training and education, policy review and development assistance and ongoing technical assistance.

  • ADA Site Surveys: Paraquad staff will conduct a site survey of facilities to evaluate accessibility compliance according to the Americans with Disabilities Act. Once an assessment is conducted, Paraquad will provide a comprehensive report and presentation of findings, recommendations and personal consultation based on the site survey results.
