On the ADA's 25th Anniversary, Celebrating Progress Achieved, They Highlighted More Improvements Needed

Since the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was signed into law on July 26, 1990, individuals with physical disabilities have been able to gain access to more buildings. In addition, employment opportunities opened up for individuals with physical disabilities, as well as individuals with mental illnesses and substance use disorders as a result of the law's prohibition of discrimination. However, more improvements are needed in enforcing the ADA and creating more access and opportunities for individuals with all types of disabilities. "It was breathtaking in scope but didn't end discrimination," as described on NJTV News (July 26, 2015).

During this broadcast, Joe Young, Executive Director of Disability Rights New Jersey, said "that the major significance that the ADA has, was that it gives people with disabilities a voice."

The physical access has been probably the most major step and the one that most people are actually aware of," Young added. He also noted that not many more individuals with disabilities are employed today compared to in the 1990s. Barriers include disincentives, such as low wages and the potential loss of medical benefits, as well as employers' attitudes, according to Young.
