Housing Issues for People with Disabilities: The ADA and other laws
Housing is essential to human survival. This commodity affords the physiological and emotional reassurance needed for citizens to engage in meaningful activities in society (Maslow, 1943). When you think of the term home, thoughts of comfort and security come to mind. However, the shortage of accessible housing in the U.S., compiled with discrimination in the housing market, reduces the availability of housing for citizens with disabilities and complicates their experiences within their homes. This webinar will cover some of the housing issues confronted by individuals with disabilities, and the different disability laws that are designed to facilitate access to appropriate housing.
