Access to transportation is essential to keeping people with disabilities active in their communities, and it is important that transit providers are up-to-date with current best practices in disability etiquette, rider rights, and laws pertaining to service animals.  

 

INSILC is proud to partner with Health by Design and the Indiana Governor's Council for People with Disabilities to offer the following free training sessions both in person and via livestream (link to livestream will be provided only to registered participants).  All trainings are developed and delivered by a qualified educator with a disability.

 

All on-site training will take place at:

Project Lead the Way

3939 Priority Way South Dr

Suite 400

Indianapolis, IN 46240

 

Registrations are limited for both the on-site event and livestream option, so be sure to register TODAY!  (Register for tickets to each session you want to attend for either the onsite or livestream option)
