Inclusion@Work: A Framework for Building a Disability-Inclusive Organization
Community Service: TOPS at COSI
As part of the partnership with COSI and Children’s Hunger Alliance teaming up to feed lives and minds of Columbus Children they have partnered to distribute grab-and-go meals and a new COSI “Learning Lunchbox,” which is a resource kit filled with hands-on science activities for children in need in the Columbus area. https://cosi.org/zoo/item/learning-lunchboxes
Seven TOPS students and two mentors attended a community service event on October 23rd, 2020 to assist with the assembly of science kits to support the COSI “Learning Lunchbox.” Student’s traveled in small group car pools and worked with their masks on. They were provided gloves and a socially distanced work station for this in-person event. We were able to take a quick moment to catch the group posing for a photo for you all. Thank you to COSI for allowing us to come and volunteer, and thank you to the TOPS Students and mentors for your service!
“Students had a lot of fun making science kits and listening to Halloween music. Molly and Alex from COSI were great!”

So happy to hear the students had a great time, we really enjoyed hosting them and they really helped out!

Polling Place Accommodations
Ohio polling places should provide touch screen voting machines and have audio adaptations for assisting the blind. There are also adaptations for voters with lack of muscle control.
If you have a disability you may also have assistance by two election officials (of different political parties) or by the person of your choice (except employer or union agent). Poll workers are urged to accommodate voters with disabilities in any way they can.
If the polling place is not accessible for you, when possible you may vote curbside. In these cases, two poll workers will take a voting device to the you.
For more information, you can utilize the American Association of People With Disabilities (AAPD) resource.
