Really nice find in my inbox this morning was an article from the Wall Street Journal regarding accessible housing design:
In trying desperately to respect copyrights but wrestling with that there is so much important information in his article, am thinking here that highlighting the more prominent resources reporter Theo Francis shares is the "safer" way to go:
400 Centers for Independent Living (CILs).. YAY, CILs get their due national "props"..!
Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Standards For Accessible Design: U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) website..
Pima County Visitability Ordinance: Accessible Society's take on that ordinance (December 23, 2003)..
CUD's Most Popular Resources: Quick hug to The Center for Universal Design at North Carolina State University for providing their info in a cognitively accessible manner.. :wink:
Article on Rosanne Grande, Bohemia, New York, investment advisor: Since she was quoted in the WSJ.. Everyone deserves their due fifteen..
IRS' Publication 502 (2007), Medical and Dental Expenses: "Including the Health Coverage Tax Credit"..
Social Security Online's Work Incentives - Detailed Information: In particular, Impairment Related Work Expenses (IRWE)..
HUD's PHA Contact Information: Public Housing Authorities searchable by area map..
National Association of Area Agencies on Aging: Cool.. Something new.. Had never heard of that one.. Thank you again, Theo.. :wink:
1997 Assistive Technology Act (AT Act) Programs: State programs, highlights, and accomplishments from the Association of Assistive Technology Act Programs..
A couple more that IMMEDIATELY came to mind to these fingertips:
Concrete Change: "An international effort to make all new homes Visitable!" :hug to Eleanor Smith:
Long as I'm at it, straight from SILCGA's website to you comes their contact info:
Statewide Independent Living Council of Georgia, Inc.
755 Commerce Drive, Suite 415
Decatur, GA 30030
Toll Free: 888-288-9780
TTY: Use GA Relay, 711
Hm. While visiting them right now, my Mind just caught Concrete Change's footer there where it appears the website's information may have been provided in one form or another from some ten years ago until.......
Precisely today, April 6, 1998.. Makes it just that much more TOO cool for school that the WSJ article on accessible housing design debuted today..
Aren't you glad these fingertips have on-demand computer access once again and finally..? :wipes sweat from cyber brow as she winks:
An-EE-way (and in conclusion,).......
*Please*, if you have just a few seconds, drop the reporter, Theo Francis, a very quick *thank you* because, human nature being what it is, people will *finally* start to take note of Visitibility purely because they did indeed see it in the Wall Street Journal.. If it works in your favorite email programs, I've set the email link below to fill in an email that very simply states, "Thank you so much for covering the very important subject of accessible home design. Visitibility benefits everyone!":
Email Theo :: Theo Francis..
Cyber hugs from Talking Rock..
