Is dwarfism a disability?Posted on - Saturday, March 27th, 2010
Most of us think of the Americans with Disabilities Act only for disabled people, such as wheel chair users, blind people and the deaf. But what about the millions of people that are shorter than 4′-0″ tall? They are called “Little People” and suffer from conditions such as dwarfism and others. Their condition prevents them from reaching things the same as others. In a hotel, especially, there are challenges for them.
Think about how we use a hotel. When we check in we have a reception counter that is typically taller than 4′-0″ high.
