In June, the National Center released a new resource about involving students with disabilities in SRTS programs. This resource is intended to help SRTS organizers include and accommodate children with disabilities in SRTS. It discusses practical strategies for involving students with disabilities in SRTS, and provides examples of schools that have done so effectively.
In recent years, many schools have begun Safe Routes to School (SRTS) programs that encourage more walking and bicycling. As you reach out to students to develop these programs, it is important to remember that students with disabilities can and should be a part of your program from the earliest planning stages. This webinar will address making your program inclusive: how to work with children with disabilities, what kinds of instruction they need and practical advice on involving students, their parents and special education professionals.
The Federal Highway Administration Office of Safety has released a new guide, A Resident's Guide for Creating Safe and Walkable Communities, to help residents, parents, community groups, and others make their communities better environments for walking.
America Walks and the National Center for Safe Routes to School present Safe Routes Coaching Action Network Webinars.
