Stepping Thru Vignette Series – Accessible Environments As We Age


The silver tsunami is here! Now that the baby boomer generation is aging, we need to consider how this impacts our built environment – an overview of design considerations which can easily be addressed now to not only allow us to age in place later but also to have others visit us whether they have issues concerning accessibility or aging, whether just slowing down, or have a more vigorous disability.



  • Understand how different types of disabilities impact our navigation of the built environment
  • Review elements in buildings that can be more of a challenge as we age
  • Learn about different items that can easily be implemented now for aging in place later
  • Overview and become aware of different hazards to avoid in the built environment

typically 2 hours for the full seminar

“Thank you. I sat in during the seminar and it was fantastic. The sound was clear and you re-asked the questions so the webinar folks understood. The back and forth with the audience was lively but to the point. I just wanted to send a note and thank you again – your draw is huge, expertise on point, and I can’t thank you enough.”

– Eric Sifuentes, CASp, Nacht & Lewis

“I have always enjoyed and been highly interested in your publications and seminars over the years. Your publications are required reading by all my staff and are a given contribution to the success of our designs.”

– Craig R. Smith AIA, CRSA Architecture

“Janis is our go-to person whenever issues requiring interpretation of CBC/ADA arise. She is knowledgable, thorough and being an architect herself helps her better understand the challenges we face implementing the ever more detailed accessibility requirements.”

–Ron Bernhardt, AIA Retail Design Collaborative

I’ve found that the seminars and webinars that Stepping Thru Accessibility offers are the most comprehensive and of the highest quality available. I have always gained very useful and practical information on a wide range of accessibility topics with Janis’s seminars/webinars; highly recommended for anyone with an interest in accessibility.
