a.)  Provide a general overview of disability rights for your chosen country. (1pt)
b.) Discuss how the country compares to different areas you have read about and watched throughout the semester concerning the Americans with Disabilities Act (i.e., compare the ADA titles/content from this week’s chapters and compare this to similar titles/content from the law(s) for your chosen country). (2pts)
c.) How do you feel the country compares historically (are they ahead or behind the US and how)? (1pt)
d.) What do you think would be the outcome of the ADA accessible design survey (i.e., the checklist) of your home/apartment/room in that country? Provide two examples (Please note, you may have to do additional research to find the answers). (1pt)
3. In addition, describe what accomplishments society has made (across the world- inside and outside the USA) in overcoming barriers (attitudinal as well as architectural) for the rights of people with disabilities and on inclusion in general. On a global scale, what do you feel we still have yet to do? (2pts)
