Historically accessibility was thought of in relation to physical access to a building. Today accessibility is examined with a wider lens. Below is an overview of what should be considered when examining accessibility.
- Physical Accessibility - Refers to a site, building, facility or environment that complies with ADA guidelines to provide equal access to all
- Digital Accessibility - Technology designed for all users to provide equal access to information that is easily navigated regardless of ability
- Attitudinal Accessibility - Behaviors, assumptions and perceptions that do not place barriers on individuals. Recognizing stereotypes, stigma, and assumptions that may exist help to increase accessibility for all
