Hello there,


Here is that language I cited earlier.  It will take me some time to see
what else I can find regarding people with disabilities participating in the
process of deciding what accommodations to use.  Please let me know you got
this.  Thanks.


42 U.S.C. 12201


"(d) Accommodations and services

Nothing in this chapter shall be construed to require an individual with a
disability to accept

an accommodation, aid, service, opportunity, or benefit which such
individual chooses not to accept."

The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the
characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise the
expectations of blind people, because low expectations create obstacles
between blind people and our dreams. You can live the life you want;
blindness is not what holds you back.
