I would like to hear from you. What are your issues, your needs. I have learned from doing and serving my clients needs. You know far better what your requirements are, but maybe not how to make them happen, or what products are out there to make it a reality. I work everyday with architects, designers, engineers, therapist who can help answer your questions…and guess what, you don’t have to pay for this !! I’ve been in this specific area since 1982 and have alot of practical knowledge that I don’t mind sharing. The idea here is to educate you and/or your friends and family to what’s out there and if your on this blog, then most of you already have visited many sites, where services and products are offered. In most cases I would prefer to educate and provide you with the information that will make your life better. SO ask questions, email me or call with your request and I hope I can be helpful. Have a Great Day, Todd
I’m very interested to learn more about your issues and needs. Let me know if you have any questions that I could offer some answers to. There are many changes in the accessible design fields from many new products to many more person’s entering into the field. It’s a great time for independence and in future blogs we will discuss everything from good design to thoughtful products that will make life easier…Ron Mace an Architect who had a disability coined the term ” Universal Design ” was a brilliant designer, architect and advocate and I was fortunate to have met and learned from him. Ron would have been very excited about how things have progressed. The Yang to that it has also become more expensive, the companies making these new products are mostly larger firms, who need to recoup their investments. But there are alternatives and as more persons, especially the senior market, continue to purchase these product lines, they will come down in price…yes the ” Ying” !
