Personal surroundings communicate strong messages about identity, social position, and values, which can make a big impact for mental or physical disabilities (Preiser, pg 4.5). A kitchen that is not A.D.A. compliant can make a person feel out of place in their own kitchen, which would affect their identity. Making a kitchen compliant will give the disabled person a place to connect to.
