How has the ADA impacted your life regarding travel/mobility, education, employment, or any other aspect?
The ADA has helped in such a tremendous way, in all of the above areas; especially the educational aspect.
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.
I honestly do not have an experience before the ADA, because my condiction began in my alduts years; and by this time the ADA had been in full operation. But, since my visual impairment, the ADA as allowed for the proper accommendations within education. I have been able to complete undergrad, and now currently pursuing my masters. Also, the ADA has made it possible, to create a system with publishers of textbooks; to allow for an alternative version to be provided to those who have a visual impairment such as myself.
What advances in disability rights would you like to see in the next 30 years?
The advances I would like to see, are the increase in Equal Oppritunity Employment(EOE) in more if not all corporate businesses.
