Since the passage of the federal Americans with
Disabilities Act in 1990, revolutionary changes have
occurred in accessibility to public and private accommodations
for persons with disabilities.
When you see existing or new buildings with curb
cuts, ramps, Braille signs, telecommunications devices
for deaf people and other accessibility features
for citizens with disabilities, you are seeing ADA
legislation in action.
Individuals with disabilities now experience the
freedom of movement, and all that goes with it including
working, shopping, visiting friends and relatives,
that the rest of society has always enjoyed.
Here at the Office for the Physically Challenged,
one of our most important tasks is to help governments
and private owners comply with the law. We also inform
businesses of the generous tax benefits and incentives
available to help defray their costs.
We stress that complying with the law doesn't have
to be prohibitively expensive. In fact, it' s simply
good business. In a society which requires the talents
of all its citizens, 54 million Americans with disabilities
comprise an impressive and largely untapped work
force and consumer market.
If you are a private owner or a government official,
we want to help you comply with the law. To help
us do the job effectively, we ask that you submit
all questions to us in writing. We will respond promptly
The Office of the Physically Challenged wants all
of our citizens to be included in the social, economic
and cultural life of our communities. The full inclusion
now required by the law benefits all citizens. Negative
attitudes and structural barriers traditionally placed
limitations on the capacities of individuals with
disabilities to live, work and play side by side
with the rest of us. Studies have shown that $195 billion
in earnings and taxes are lost each year because
of unemployment among people with disabilities. Our
role is to help individuals with disabilities help
themselves by assisting businesses, consumer facilities
and government agencies to modify their policies,
practices and procedures as well as remove structural
barriers where necessary.
Surely, full participation and equal
opportunities in the work force, consumer markets,
educational realm and technology revolution enrich
the fabric of our society as well as empower people
with disabilities to realize individual potentials.
