International Symbol of Accessibility (ISA)

The International Symbol of Accessibility (ISA) is perhaps the most recognizable symbol in the world.  

In 2009 it was redesigned to emphasize motion. The Accessible Icon Project is an ongoing work of design activism.  Although the redesign has not been adopted universally as the new ISA,  LVCIL / AccessCheck actively encourages its use where possible.  The ADA states that variations of the ISA are permissible, however it's best to check your local codes / regulations before using the new icon. 


The ISA and the redesigned icon Post-it Note window display at LV Center for Independent Living, Allentown, PA. 


The new icon utilized in LVCIL parking lot.
