Client Assessment

 Back To Accessible Design Videos

About The Video

Up Close  and Personal® is the second in a series of educational  videos that provide practical, proven, real-life information on the  most effective ways to create residential and commercial living environments for people with disabilities and the aging population.

The essential first step in designing accessible environments is determining how the space will be used. Up Close and Personal® takes you step-by  step through the process of assessing your clients' activities of daily  living (ADL's). Families share their unique needs in an up close and  personal manner. Watch each assessment process and the family dynamics  unfold as the host shares:

  • How to effectively communicate with a client about their disability and personal needs
  • How to walk through a home initially to determine potential environmental barriers
  • How a contractor interviews a husband and wife who use assistive communication devices
  • How an occupational therapist obtains critical measurements of a 9 year old girl who is paraplegic and uses a manual wheelchair


Viewer Comment:

"In Up Close and Personal, seeing how you and other professionals interacted with several families, across the generations, was very helpful. I also thought the production quality was first rate, as was the narration."  MO, New York
