New Video: How to Rate Sites in Your Community for Usability

Wouldn’t it be great to know how usable a restaurant, store, medical office or other site is before you actually visit it? The CHEC (Community Health Environment Checklist) is a free tool that enables people with disabilities and their advocates to rate the usability of sites in their community, then share the scores on an online map. You can learn more about this tool in the video CHEC It Out: Map Your Community’s Usability. For information on training to use the CHEC, contact Jessica Dashner, OTD OTR/L, at or 314-932-1018; or Megen Devine at
