Inclusivity & Accessibility
Inclusivity isn't just an event planning initiative; it's a given. It's an initiative of respect for those veterans and servicemen who might face challenges when it comes to accessibility. Everyone in your group should feel welcomed in an inclusive environment. You'll want to plan for accessibility in advance, from transportation to and from an event, to resources for disabled individuals.
Adaptive Driving Access in Bryan provides a fleet of wheelchair accessible rental vans to offer round-trip travel accommodations for your event. State and community partnerships with the organization, Patriot Paws of Aggieland, help provide invaluable services and resources to disabled veterans, such as:
• Getting help in medical emergencies
• Recognizing and averting PTSD episodes
• Pulling wheelchairs
• Providing bracing to stand, walk, and sit down, and more.
