Building Capacity from the Inside Out: Lessons Learned from the ADA Trainer Network
Presented by: LaWanda Cook, Ph.D., DBTAC Northeast ADA Center The ADA Trainer Network was created by the Northeast ADA Center (DBTAC-NE) at the Employment and Disability Institute at Cornell University. The purpose of this initiative is to enhance our capacity to reach a broader range of stakeholders in our region — stakeholders who are directly or indirectly impacted by the ADA whether in their personal experience, in a professional role, through employment, in their business and customer interactions, in their relationship to the built environment or in their participation in other programs and policies. This session will include some of the findings from the research component of this project and some of the lessons learned since the inception of the program. This webinar is ideally suited for past ADA Trainer Network participants as well as others interested in launching a similar Train the Trainer program in their own communities.
