The Americans with Disabilities Act outlines broad standards in building design for people with disabilities. Many of these standards are useful for people affected by Duchenne muscular dystrophy, yet some aspects are impractical.

Whether adding a ramp, remodeling, or building a new home, information about what features are useful and practical is important, especially as adding unnecessary or poorly designed elements add costs to a budget. Choosing the right architect and builder who will employ the features that work best is also an important consideration.

After investing in a remodeling or building project, know the tax implications may help reduce income tax obligations. Finding a knowledgeable tax professional will ensure you don’t miss opportunities for deductions and credits or make errors in filing for expenses not covered.
