Paper examines a diagram used to describe Project IMPACT's (Integrated Multi-Perspective Access to Campus Technology) A3 Model, which was developed to clarify different methods or approaches used by organizations to create accessibility options for people with disabilities. The diagram is titled "A3 Model and Transition of Approach," and is used in instruction related to accessibility and universal design. The diagram illustrates how advocacy, accommodation, and accessibility contributed to the design of Project IMPACT, and theoretical relationships of these topics are demonstrated as a function of time in a 100 percent stacked area chart (pictured). The diagram has been used in a variety of presentation settings with audiences who have a range of disability knowledge and experience.
