Sometimes common behaviors are problematic for our neighbors with disabilities. For example, some people's health is seriously compromised by cigarette smoke. So cigarette smoke traveling from one apartment to another is not just an inconvenience but can actually threaten a person's life. This type of problem is complex and not easy to resolve. We suggest that experts in disability law be consulted. Resources are included at the end of this publication. Other problems may be easier to resolve through conversation. A person, as part of a disability, may mumble to himself. Neighbors riding in the elevator may take this behavior as threatening and therefore a nuisance. By following the steps listed above, these neighbors may be able to reach an understanding and tolerance of each other.
