The ADA of 1990 intends to ensure access and participation in society for persons with disabilities and is specifically directed at employment, public accommodations, public services, transportation and telecommunications.  However, the intent of the original ADA bill has slowly disintegrated as protections have been repeatedly ignored due to narrow interpretations by the court. The ADA Amendments Act of 2008 (ADAAA) restores the original law with a more fair and broad definition of "disability," and ensures that individuals in need of protection under the law will not be shut out.

Listen and learn about how the ADAAA can help you!
