Impact: Feature Issue on the ADA and People with Intellectual, Developmental, and Other Disabilities (Winter 2015)

Description: In this issue, which marks the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), individuals with disabilities, families, advocates, service providers, researchers, and others talk about how the ADA has made a difference in their lives, the lives of their loved ones, and in our nation. Its articles talk about the ADA as a promise our country has made that Americans with disabilities will have the same opportunity as Americans without disabilities to experience freedom, dignity, meaning, and inclusion. At the same time, the issue also focuses on ways in which that promise hasn't yet fully addressed many of the barriers faced by people with intellectual and developmental disabilities as they seek equal opportunity and inclusion in their communities.
