How to make cooking classes more accessible

It seems like the norm today that so many people are seeking to improve their culinary skills through the taking of cooking classes and it is really no different for those with a disability.

If you are seeking to make your cooking cleass more accessible to this particular group of clients then here are some tips for you.

  1. Make your kitchens more accessible; wider entries to entrances and exits for those using wheelchairs and walkers.
  2. Make your counters easier to reach for those in wheelchairs.
  3. Do not make them too wide because those in wheelchairs would need to be able to reach them.
  4. Make sure that your cupboards are easy to reach and that doors are painted in contrastable and distinguishable colors so that persons with low vision can easily distinguish them.
  5. Make sure that door handles and door knobs are easy to find and easy to handle.
  6. Make sure that colors of your kitchen are contrasting. That is, the color of your floor is different to those of counter tops, drawers, and cupboards.
  7. Make sure that ingredient containers are well labelled.

This should be a good start for you.
