An easy to use reference, The ADA Reference Guide helps readers quickly understand the new requirements of the updated Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines (ADAAG), an issue of concern for both the public and practitioners. Rather than simply presenting the ADAAG, the author enhances understanding of key issue by adding explanations, commentary, and illustrations to help walk the reader through roundabout bureaucratic language. The author, an architect, consults regularly on accessibility issues for clients including design professionals, building owners, and facility managers.
