There were numbers of festivities going on yesterday to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the ADA. Like most of you I suspect, I can’t imagine a public building being built in a manner that excludes people with disabilities or not having kids with disabilities have full access to education and employment.
The 20th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act
It’s not that long ago that this was not the case, and we can’t afford to rest now.
Just the other day I was taking Siraya to a doctor’s appointment that she would have been unable to attend on her own as there was no way for a person in a wheelchair to open the front door to the “Professional Building”. For an “end user” perspective on accessibility, try out The Travelling Wheelchair.
So, let’s celebrate what we have achieved and work harder to achieve more.
As usual, The 19th Floor has an interesting perspective.
