How to build RAMPS for home accessibility

This is an index to a 66 page document on how to build ramps for home accessibility. This approach builds on the strengths of the community, involves volunteers, ensures quality and safety, and can be adapted to an individual's situation. One of the most notable characteristics of the design is the modular system which allows the ramp to be reused time and again. The ramp design presented in this manual is an effective, low-cost solution to meet the access needs of persons with disabilities.

"We cannot afford to let the issue of disabilities be simply an afterthought. We have a unique opportunity now, as industry pours billions of dollars into upgrading the communications infrastructure, to make sure that people with disabilities are not left behind. Now is the time. Accessibility of services and products for all Americans has got to be a design feature, not an add-on."
