In Honor of International Day of Persons with Disabilities, SNC Launches Accessibility Score

December 3, 2015 – Atlanta, GA. –  With the launch of a new feature which allows users to determine how accessible a place is, Special Needs Communities continues to move closer to creating a more inclusive society.Users who use the Special Needs Communities app or website can now grade places not only on their customer service, but also by how accessible they are. Users are able to rate the accessibility of the parking, entrance, restroom and overall environment of any given place. Once a user has shared an experience, the place they visited will receive a star rating for their customer service and a numerical score for their accessibility. User are not required to rate the accessibility of a place if accessibility is not a concern for them. The customer service star rating is on a scale of one to five stars and the accessibility score is on a numerical score between zero and one hundred.

“This is a great day for Special Needs Communities and the people we serve”, said Lindsey Turner, founder of Special Needs Communities. “We always want to be working towards our mission of creating a society where everyone, regardless of their abilities, is treated with love and acceptance and I believe this is a step in the right direction.”

Special Needs Communities plans to offer a service beginning in 2016 where they will consult with businesses which want to make their environment more accessible. In the meantime if a business does receive a poor accessibility score a representative of Special Needs Communities will reach out to that business in order to provide suggestions on how they can improve.

If you’d like to add a business to the special needs certified app or website all you have to do is “Share an Experience”. You can find the “Share an Experience” feature on the home page of the app and website.

You can download the app by visiting the Apple Store: http://apple.co/1LtZK07 or the Google Play Store: http://bit.ly/1HgbrfY.
