How has the ADA impacted your life regarding travel/mobility, education, employment, or any other aspect?

I like the ADA because it makes going to school a lot easier. I also love having access to Bookshare because it’s made it a lot easier for me to get into books.

Can you share a “before and after” experience; e.g., before the ADA I couldn’t do X or was denied access to Y, and thanks to the ADA I can do Z.

The ADA has been around ever since I was born, so I’ve been lucky to have access to what it offers for my entire life.

What advances in disability rights would you like to see in the next 30 years?

I would like to see spelling taken more seriously, because in my school I am pretty bad at spelling, and I was not allowed to have a tutor because it wasn’t as important. That would be nice to change.
