"I received your DVD's. I have watched them all and found them to be very informative. I know that I will get a lot of use out of them, and will review them frequently. It's a great learning tool for doing a home assessment, and should be something that anyone starting out in this field should review." Tom I

The ABCs of Accessibility® inc. created this video series to provide education and product recommendations in the field of accessible design. The program targets professionals who design and build both residential and commercial living environments. The series consists of five videos (the first two are currently available, the remaining three are in development), each offering a comprehensive look at a key area of accessible design. Each video provides practical, proven, real-life information on the most effective ways to create living environments for people with disabilities and the aging population.

The first video in the series, Crossing the Line®, has been honored with the 1998 International Television Association Silver Award and the 1999 Women in Film Award for Production Excellence.
