What tips do you have for someone who is renting and uses a wheelchair? Whether it's convincing a landlord that they must comply with the ADA to the best of their abilities or somehow using Command strips to make life easier, what's your best advice?

    Communications is the key here. Let your landlord know what you need and what is required. And Command Strips – aren’t they the best for putting things where you want them.

     Also, the Paralysis Resource Center has information on ADA Basics, Advocacy, and Independent Living. You can reach out to us if you would like to receive any of this information. The Information Specialist Team can be reached by calling: 1-800-539-7309 or individuals can ask a question here: https://www.christopherreeve.org/get-support/ask-us-anything

    We recently published a “Become a Self-Advocate” brochure which we can mail as well. It can be found here: http://s3.amazonaws.com/reeve-assets-production/Self-Advocacy-Trifold-12-5-18-FINAL.pdf
