In this episode of Change Makers, we’re talking about the Americans with Disabilities Act, better known as the ADA. We’re going to talk briefly about how the ADA came about and what the ADA has accomplished, what advances should be made and how to advocate for yourself or a loved one. On this Podcast (In Order of Appearance)Jack Fox Fox, NarratorSara Brown, APH Public Relations ManagerPaul Schroeder,  APH Vice President, Government and Community Affairs.Tai Tomasi, APH Director, Accessibility, Diversity and InclusionAdditional LinksEmail Tai TomasiCongressional InformationThe federal government provides substantial financial support for special education, including education for students who are blind or visually impaired. Each year, Congress decides how much funding to allocate to programs like APH. Congress will soon be making those decisions. Parents, educators, and students, are the best messengers to educate Congress or state legislatures about the educational needs of students who are blind or visually impaired and the services that ensure success. Providing information to educate a member of Congress or other policymaker is legal, expected and very helpful to them in doing their job. An email or phone call describing your experience with available educational material like accessible books, technology or special instruction aids is very useful.To find your representative use the state directory or zip code search Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies (116th Congress)US Senate, Subcommittee on Appropriations for Education and other AgenciesLegislationAlice Cogswell and Anne Sullivan Macy Act, H.R. 1959, S. 813Access Technology Affordability Act (ATAA)H.R. 431S. 212
