ADA Transition Plans & Consulting

Life Quest ADA Self-Evaluation Report example

The Transition Plan Spreadsheet (TPS) is a combination of all items identified in the Self-Evaluation Report (SER) as non-compliant and includes potential solutions, as well as additional details. It is a cloud-based document that can include updates that the SER may not have and includes changes requested by each individual client. It is a separate live link that can remain live and/or be downloaded into Excel.

In the TPS, changes can easily be made to the Complexity and Priority Levels. This is a “living document” that provides the following, based on the organization's needs, and can be completely customized.

  • List of items that need to be modified
  • Ranking of priority for each
  • Time frame for modifications
  • Budget for completion, then final costs
  • Responsible party making modifications
  • Miscellaneous items requested by the client

All efforts are made to ensure the Self-Evaluation Report and the Transition Plan Spreadsheet are as accurate as possible and are a snapshot of existing conditions examined at the time of the Self-Evaluation.

The SER and the TPS provide information on the findings and include recommendations with reference to the 1991 and/or 2010 Standards for Accessible Design, etc.

Continued services can also include anything from site plan reviews to consulting on effective products that help ensure the greatest level of compliance and access for persons with disabilities.

CLIENT FEEDBACK:

Confidential client

Todd came up with a simple idea that stunned our design team and engineers. It saved us thousands.

Leah Powell

City of Chandler Neighborhood Resources Director

The City of Chandler has hired Nanette Odell as an ADA trainer and consultant for many years. Nanette is passionate about what she does and demonstrates her depth of knowledge, professionalism, and pleasant demeanor in every training session. She creates a safe environment where her students feel comfortable asking questions as she guides them towards meaningful dialogue.

Confidential client

Instead of just telling me what we needed to do to become compliant and accessible, she helped our team understand why it’s so important.

Michele Stokes

City of Tempe ADA Compliance Specialist

I have worked with Nanette in various capacities for over the past 20 years or so. Her integrity, sincerity and love of people are evident in all she does. Her organization skills are superb and she finishes what she starts. Wonderful to work with!

Bill Scott

President of Abilities Unlimited, Inc.

I was immediately impressed with her subtle, yet effective sense of humor, and healthy dose of sensitivity towards all people. Nanette’s extraordinary depth of knowledge in a wide range of disability issues was readily apparent and was exceeded only by her high energy and very positive delivery style.

Chris Curcio, Former Deputy Director of the City of Phoenix

Parks and Recreation Department

I was enormously impressed by Nanette’s sincerity and resourcefulness. She is indeed a rare employee who cares deeply about what she is doing.

Previous Projects:

Arizona ADA Coordinators Conference 2009

“It was very beneficial to be exposed to a wide variety of persons with disabilities to get a more “human” perspective in how they work through their disabilities instead of thinking of ADA situations as just someone who needs an accommodation. Plus it helpful to see the connection be made in how the ADA is really a civil rights law.”

“Glad to have out-of-state visitors of this caliber to provide national perspective and higher standards.”

“I actually found out that I am the ADA Coordinator for my agency during the opening session. I didn’t know that part of my duties had a name.”

“Very knowledgeable speakers. They gave valuable info that was empowering and motivational.”
“Meeting people and building connections for future resource sharing. Getting individual questions and needs addressed. Wonderful resources-CD’s, handouts, websites, etc. Appreciate recycling and vegetarian food.

ADA09-11

EmployAbility Rally, Arizona State Capitol October 2010

Local and nationally known speakers from grassroots, business, and government will:

Celebrate the transformative power of achieving the American right to decent work and fair treatment.
Build “Disability Confident” employers by making an effective business case for the advantages of working with this diverse workforce.

Share the potential of harnessing the largest and most underserved American minority through voter registration, market-specific branding, and innovative product/service creation.

Bring public attention to the lifespan issues of adults with disabilities associated with work, health care, housing, and community connectedness.
