    25th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act

    Posted: 8/4/15 10:12 AM

    Last week, we celebrated the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act. In the past 25 years, many improvements to access have been made which have benefited not only individuals with disabilities but society as a whole.  How often have you listened to an audio book, used the curb cut, pushed an automatic door opener, or used a ramp because it was more convenient?  It may have been convenient for some but a necessity for others to have access to printed materials, cross the street, enter a building, or bypass stairs. Those are only a few improvements to access that have been made.  Although end roads have been made, there is much more work to be done. The Americans with Disabilities Act is civil rights legislation signed into law to protect the rights of all people with disabilities to have full meaningful participation in society, despite physical, medically or psychologically imposed functional limitations and barriers.
