Hey OT's and OTA's!! If you have never taken a moment to review the ADA Standards for Accessible Design, here's your chance.  This is the document behind public modifications for accessibility for those that are differently-abled.  Door heights, ramp proportions, wheelchair accessible door measurements, its all here!!

The Department of Justice published revised regulations for Titles II and III of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 "ADA" in the Federal Register on September 15, 2010. These regulations adopted revised, enforceable accessibility standards called the 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design "2010 Standards" or "Standards". The 2010 Standards set minimum requirements – both scoping and technical – for newly designed and constructed or altered State and local government facilities, public accommodations, and commercial facilities to be readily accessible to and usable by individuals with disabilities.
