People Are Talking...

I am convinced that the business and disability communities can build alliances and make the promises of the ADA a reality. Your work in this area is advancing the effort.

Ralph F. Boyd, Jr., Assistant Attorney General, U. S. Department of Justice

We believe the existence of this program has already had the effect of discouraging numerous ADA claims. ... I am certain that Long John Silver’s, Inc. will avoid significant legal exposure by virtue of having the program as well as the goodwill the existence of the program will create.

Whayne M. Hougland, Former Vice President and Legal Counsel of Long John Silver's Restaurants. Inc., Currently Executive Director, Long John Silver's Franchisee Association

This program represents an important change from the typical ADA seminar..."do these things to stay out of trouble." Opening Doors® was the highest rated workshop at our annual human resources conference.

Mark Ernst, Former Vice President Human Resources, Freedom Communications, Currently Founder and President, Ernst Enterprises, LLC

Your video and activity book should be required for not just hotel employees, but for the general public as well. It shows that with minimal effort, people with disabilities can be easily accommodated and served.

Executive Director, Center on Deafness
