A Life Worth Living’s BUSINESS ACCESSIBILITY TOOLKIT (BAT)

The Business Accessibility Toolkit (BAT) is a set of multimedia learning tools designed specifically to assist businesses in educating and training their staff on how businesses are incorporating accessibility in the workplace. The BAT will primarily feature video content. Live footage and animated shorts will lead the user (i.e. the trainer and trainee) through the training exercise. Supporting the videos will be PDF documents and images to build your own binders and policies. Each component will exist as a standalone instruction tool, capable of inclusion in larger lesson plans or full courses. These tools can truly empower businesses to maximize the potential of employers/employees.
