Hello JennyI suggest you can review this link from the Dept of Justice on ADA regulations. It appears from the guidelines and your description of her disability that Your daughter should NOT be denied the right to use the wheelchair. I suggest you may want to contact the ADA for any further assistance once you have reviewed the link.
