This week is the 25th anniversary of the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Lisa Seymour is the DeKalb County manager for RAMP. It's an agency that helps people with disabilities live independently and get jobs.
"I think there has been much progress due to the ADA for individuals with disabilities, but there is still much progress that needs to be made," Seymour said.
Before the act, there was little protection for those with disabilities. They ran the risk of being discriminated against if their disabilities were physically apparent.
