Event description

Description

Art-Reach is excited to be partnering with United Disabilities Services (UDS) Foundations's Service Dogs Program for June's CAFE. A service dog can perform specific tasks that help a person with a disability lead a more independent life. Participants will learn how service dogs work with people's busy lives, the training dogs go through to meet Assistance Dogs International (ADI) standards, and the distinctions between service animals, emotional support animals, and therapy animals. The session will discuss the rights that someone with a service dog has in public spaces under the ADA, and what steps cultural organizations can take to develop reasonable modification that ensures accessible and respectful environments.

Art-Reach welcomes Kristina Smith, the Program Coordinator for UDS Service Dogs, to lead this discussion and a demonstration by a certified service dog. To learn more about the UDS Foundation's Service Dogs, visit https://www.udservices.org

Cultural Accessibility Forum & Exchange (CAFE) is an initiative driven by Art-Reach to focus on cultural accessibility. These workshops gather cultural organizations, human service professionals, members of the disability community and national experts in the field to learn from one another.
