ACCESS Miami Guide Now Available at the Miller School
The latest edition of ACCESS Miami, a free local resource guide designed to help people with physical or sensory disabilities navigate Miami-Dade County, is now available at the Miller School’s Mailman Center for Child Development, suite 2035A, and The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis.
If you have ever wondered how to get from the boardwalk to the beach in a wheelchair, how to modify a home to accommodate a disability, or what transportation services are available for the disabled in Miami-Dade County, ACCESS Miami’s new fourth edition is for you.
Divided into categories, the guide provides information on employment and access to parks, pools and educational facilities, and includes a description of services offered and complete contact information.
Compiled and written by Rochelle “Shelly” Baer, LCSW, who helped publish the first edition in 2003 when she was a fellow in the Miami Fellows Initiative, a leadership program funded through the Dade Community Foundation, ACCESS Miami is now under the auspices of the Mailman Center, where Baer coordinates the Emerging Transformational Leadership Program.
ACCESS Miami is also available at the Center for Independent Living, 6660 Biscayne Boulevard, Shake-A-Leg, 2600 South Bayshore Drive, the Greater Miami Convention and Visitors Bureau, 701 Brickell Avenue, suite 2700, Miami Lighthouse for the Blind, 601 S.W. 8th Avenue, and the ADA Coordination Office, 111 N.W. 1st Street, 12th floor, suite 348.
