No inv Maine Shlau Tdeus on Dottie Tati Ai i in us 25 years legislation has changed lives continued from 1a ties a elated after years of activism a gathered outside the White House for the ceremony. The act is monumental in scope intended to protect people with disabilities from discrimination and enable them to participate fully in the workforce and their communities. Its protections which now cover an estimated 55 million americans extend to five key areas employment state and local government facilities and services Public accommodations telecommunications and transportation. Even before the Ada was signed Fred Maahs was Well on his Way to a successful career As a businessman and disability rights activist. He is now an executive of co cast corp. And recently ended a term As chairman of the american association of people with disabilities. By bringing attention to physical barriers the Ada has made a a quantum difference Quot he says.

A the unemployment rate for people with disabilities is outrageous a Maahs said. A and a Law in t going to change the attitudinal barriers. Probably at some Point in their life every kid today with some form of disability will encounter discrimination or stereotyping or the Ada did not come about easily a it took decades of work by people with disabilities and their allies. In Congress w Here the act was introduced in 1988, its champions included several lawmakers personally affected by disabilities including rep. Tony Coelho of California who had epilepsy. In the Senate key support ers included Tom Harlem of Iowa whose brother was deaf ted Kennedy of Massachusetts whose son had a leg amputated and Robert Dole of Kansas who suffered lasting injuries during combat in Italy in world War ii.

A Quarter Century after Adas passage joblessness among disabled americans remains far higher than for other adults. Just 17.1 percent of people with a disability were employed in 2014, compared to 64.6 percent of those without a disability according to the latest Federal figures. The Ada stipulates that disabled Job applicants should be considered on an equal basis with other applicants but it has provided Little deterrent if an employer opts not to hire a disabled person.
