Planning an event may also mean that you will need to consider obtaining a communication access provider (i.e. sign language interpreter, or CART (Communication Access Realtime Translation) provider) amend other services for students and guests with disabilities. This may depend upon the size of your event and the specific needs of your participants. You should budget for this need just in case. Of course it is always important to consider the location of your event and make sure that the venue is accessible to all guests, including those in wheelchairs. Student Disability Services can provide guidance in obtaining the services your guests may need.
