While landmark legislation such as the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) of 1975 and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 that protects the rights of children and adults with disabilities has enhanced the quality of life for children and adults with disabilities, there is more to be done.
Now more than ever, people with disabilities need to be active participants in their communities and a lively political voice. In addition, the families and friends of children and adults with disabilities can be strong advocates. Together, we can influence legislation and public policy that will ensure people with disabilities lead active, independent lives.
