The Access Check-In

APR 10, 2019 7:59 PM

This is a simple script for interrupting ableist culture in your meetings to create a more accessible space for everyone! Thanks to Grant Miller for the concept and August Schulenburg for some of the language in this description. 

Accessibility check-ins disrupt ableism in meeting culture. The majority of meeting systems, structures, and cultural norms are centered around the needs of abled, neurotypical participants. As a result, neurodiverse and people with disabilities are prevented from fully participating. An accessibility check-in provides an opportunity at the beginning of a gathering for every participant to share what they need in order to bring their whole selves to the process. These check-ins play an important role in developing an accessible workplace, establishing a culture of inclusion, as well as fully supporting individual participants.
