Americans with Disabilities Act
Compliance Assessment Toolkit

The Americans With Disabilities Act – Compliance Assessment Kit (ADA-CAT) is a screening tool to allow individuals without advanced training to assess the architectural barriers of the built environment. It is not intended to provide an absolute measure of the features, but rather to provide simple, pass-fail assessments of the requirements of the ADA and other accessibility standards. The kit is composed of two parts. The Audits, which define the characteristics of an accessible and usable environment, can be found on the web site below. The Measurement Kit includes components for making the various assessments. ADA-CAT was developed by the Assistive Technology Research Institute at Misericordia University with support from R2D2 Center at University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee. It is now available for purchase. (See below.)

The Measurement Kit

The ADA-CAT Measurement Kit is a set of tools that have been developed to allow individuals with only modest training in assessing accessibility to quickly determine whether or not features of the environment meet the standards of the ADA and the Audits. The Measurement Kit is intended to be a screening tool, and not the “final word” on accessible design. The Measurement Toolkit has a number of components, some of which are patent pending to the toolkit.
