Abstract

Through a meta-review of global trends and the contextualization of the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the author proposes that a change of strategy and focus is required to achieve the ADA’s aspirations. The argument is made that the disability community and inclusion effort must participate in a leadership role in shaping the current transformation of society, including three broad systemic factors: (a) design and development, (b) research and evidence, and (c) education and learning, to avert widening disparity and address risks that affect all members of the global society.
