Excellent job highlighting the importance of the ADA law and how it has made a difference in the lives of those that live with a disability (“The ADA Enforcers,” July 2020). The testimonials certainly highlight the challenges to enable accessibility and improvements in the quality of life for so many. Thank you for sharing your work to educate everyone and to create greater awareness.
A Table Too Low
Thanks for your column (“Ervin: Taking the ADA on the Chin,” July 2020). In one assisted living facility I lived in — I am in my fourth — I went to great lengths to have my wheelchair measured so that I could fit under the table. After many fittings, the maintenance crew decided the answer was to have the table legs replaced only when I was eating, but not permanently. It must have been a relief when I moved.
