Staff would be available to assist the user in adjusting the bike/trike and to provide basic instruction on its use.

Currently, DDOT is collecting data on potential users’ needs to inform future planning, equipment purchases, and staff needs.

DDOT wants to hear from you. Please take the brief survey (link below). The survey will help to better understand interest, determine the type of bicycles, and identify potential rental locations. The survey includes eight questions and should take about 10 minutes to complete.

AJE UPDATE: Student Fair Access to School Amendment Act of 2018 (SFASA)

Monday, March 4 -

Last spring, DC City Council passed the Student Fair Access to School Amendment Act of 2018 (SFASA). Several parts of the SFASA went into effect on August 25, 2018, while other parts will go into effect later in school years 2019 and 2020.

Important parts of the law now in effect include:

  • Students in grades kindergarten to 5 cannot receive an out-of-school suspension for longer than five (5) consecutive school days for a single incident.
  • Students in grades 6 to 12 cannot receive an out-of-school suspension for longer than ten (10) consecutive school days for a single incident.
  • Students regardless of grade cannot receive more than twenty (20) cumulative school days of out-of-school suspension during a school year unless the head of the school provides written justification to the student and parent describing why exceeding 20 days is more appropriate than alternative responses.

All students are entitled to a hearing before they are excluded from school for 6 days or more unless there is an emergency that justifies removing the student prior to a hearing. Also, if a student who has an individualized education program (IEP) or a 504 plan is going to be suspended for more than 10 school days, SFASA makes it clear that schools must consider all of the student's disabilities when considering if the student's conduct is a result of the student's disability. This is called a Manifestation Determination Review (or an MDR).

To learn more about Manifestation Determination Reviews, SFASA, and your other rights, check out our know your rights handouts HERE.

American University Symposium on Disability, Access, and Teaching

Wednesday, April 10, 2019

“Disability, Access, and Teaching: A One-Day Symposium” will bring together American University's campus and local communities to better understand and foster accessible, inclusive learning environments. While a number of faculty members at American University focus their research on disability, and student and faculty resource centers engage with questions of disability, it is rare for students, staff, faculty, and administrators to come together for a sustained conversation about accessible pedagogy and disability theory. We aim to facilitate precisely that conversation.

We offer this symposium with the hope of creating a community for students, faculty, staff, and administration around a shared sense of identity so that people with disabilities will feel a stronger sense of belonging at AU. We also want to foster a greater awareness for the work already being done at AU and provide space to let people build relationships and networks. The symposium is free and actively invites all AU members, DC community members and disability studies faculty and graduate students at nearby universities.

Place: American University - 4400 Massachusetts Ave., NW

Tickets on Sale Now: Into the Woods Sensory-Friendly Performance

Saturday, May 11, 2019 from 2:00 PM to

In Stephen Sondheim’s imaginative, darkly comical remix of beloved fairy tales, a baker and his wife set out to reverse a witch's curse in hopes of having a child of their own. The couple’s quest takes them into the woods, where they encounter Little Red Ridinghood, Jack and his beanstalk, a cautious Cinderella, a sequestered Rapunzel and a couple of lovelorn princes. Sondheim's lush Tony-winning score and James Lapine's Tony-winning book conjure a world where "giants can be good and witches can be right."

This performance is designed to welcome anyone who might benefit from an adjusted theatre environment—including those on the autism spectrum or others with sensory sensitivities. This performance will feature adjustments to lighting and sound effects, a relaxed theatre environment that allows for movement, designated break spaces, and pre-visit materials.

Place: Ford's Theatre - 511 10th St., NW

Cost: $25-$30
