APA’s resource room for persons with disabilities
Every year, the Disability Issues in Psychology Office coordinates and provides continuous staff support to the Disability Resource Room. This bustling area housed within the main convention center is dedicated to providing services to our convention attendees with disabilities. It is utilized by persons with disabilities who desire a place to rest or relax; need assistance with hotel and convention information; to access the convention program using screen reading software; to borrow wheelchairs and canes; and to secure the help of a volunteer.
What we offer:
The following lists the full array of services offered by the Resource Room:
Loaner wheelchairs and canes
On call Sign Language interpreters
Convention program on file
