Blogathon: In the News: Part 3

I was googling around in hopes of finding some positive news about the world of developmental disabilities and disabilities in general, and I did! Check this article out!

So it’s not in regards to Canadians, but it is for Americans. The Americans with Disabilities Act which helps open the way to better accessibility all around. The point of the ADA was to create equality  and convenience. It’s also one of the first few steps to dispeling stigmas and stereotypes of people with disabilities. Just because people have disabilities doesn’t mean they have a lack of ability. They have abilities far beyond anyone can imagine, and this ADA will hopefully help them do what they need to do. It’s very encouraging to see these types of acts in North America.

Canada should also work to create an easily accessible environment for all people.

We at DDA, kind of like the ADA,  are also on our path to eliminate stigma about people with developmental disabilities.  Please sponsor us for our blogathon efforts.
