But pools can be made handicap accessible, and in this case I completely agree that they should be.
There is almost no better form of therapy for a child or adult that is literally stuck to a wheelchair for most of their time each day than to experience the freedom that comes with being able to mobilze more in a pool. If we can install simple equipment onto pool surfaces to make them more accessible to these people, then we should do it. We are only talking about ~$5000 to install a simple lift; were you this up in arms when the ADA required elevators in shopping malls, or hydraulic lifts in sporting venues? Those cost much more.
The Justice Department on Thursday issued a 60-day stay of execution for hundreds of thousands of public pools which had been required to install ramps and wheelchair lifts by today or else face lawsuits over violating disability laws.
