ADA Accommodations

Housing

If you need to request ADA accommodations for housing, please click on the blue Wheelchair icon International symbol of Access in your shopping cart during your registration. This will take you to a policy statement, followed by a link for an accommodations request form; you only need to complete the first page of the request form. This form must be printed, completed and mailed in to our office no later than April 5, 2019; any requests received after this deadline cannot be guaranteed.

If you would like to make a non-ADA housing accommodation request, a screen will be available in the registration process on the housing page to enter that request. If you have already registered and need to make an accommodation request, you can log back into your registration screens and complete the request on that screen or call our registration office at 801-422-8925 to add that information to your account. The deadline is  April 5, 2019.

Other ADA Requests

If you have other ADA requests, i.e., American Sign Language interpreters, etc. follow the same procedure as above during your registration and complete and mail the form in to our office no later than April 12, 2019; any requests received after this deadline cannot be guaranteed. You must also contact the BYU Accessibility office at 801-422-2767 no later than April 12, 2019 to give them the details of your accessibility request.

Participants who are Hard of Hearing or Deaf

American Sign Language interpreters will be provided for all Marriott Center conference sessions. Participants needing ASL interpretation should sit in section 8, row 3 (enter through Portal H).

Interpreters for sessions outside of the Marriott Center are available upon request. Requests should include the session title, location and time. Seating for the ASL interpreter, ASL participant and one companion will be reserved at the front of the room in the requested session. All requests must be received by April 12, 2019; any requests received after this date cannot be guaranteed.

The Marriott Center has a limited number of assistive listening devices for use in their facility. You will need to leave a picture ID when checking out the device (driver's license, etc.). For assistive listening devices in other conference locations, inquire at a nearby Women's Conference information desk.

Participants who are Visually Impaired

If you have a visual disability and need your conference program in an alternate format, please contact the University Accessibility Center at 801-422-2767.

Wheelchair and Mobility Seating

Marriott Center wheelchair seating is available at most portals on the concourse level. Limited floor wheelchair seating is available for those accompanied by one companion who can push the chair up a steep ramp in the event of an emergency. The companion may not be seated on the floor or in wheelchair areas but in close proximity.

Due to limited wheelchair seating in the Marriott Center and other conference venues, wheelchair areas are reserved for only those participants who use wheelchairs. Participants who have additional types of mobility or health concerns should arrive early to secure a seat, as all seating is on a first-come basis.

Note: All restroom facilities are located on the concourse level in the Marriott Center.

Transportation

One wheelchair-accessible van is available for participants in wheelchairs, who may be accompanied by one companion. To contact the wheelchair van driver, call 385-335-3143 (on May 2 and May 3) and indicate your shuttle stop*.

*Available only during shuttle stop hours which are posted in the program.

Disability Parking

Participants who have state disability placards may park in any of the state disability parking spaces on campus (blue signs with wheelchairs). If these spaces are filled in a particular lot, you may hang your placard and park in any of the parking spaces except in spaces designated for deans and service vehicles, or timed lots.
