Course Description

The Americans with Disability Act – or the ADA – is a civil rights law that protects individuals with disabilities by prohibiting discrimination against them.    The ADA covers all areas of public life, including employment, school, transportation, shopping, services, and etc.    Its purpose is to make sure that individuals with disabilities have the same rights and opportunities as those without, such as in opportunities for employment, public accommodations, transportation, telecommunications, as well as state and local governments.

  • The purpose of the ADA
  • The definition of disability under the ADA
  • The objectives of the ADA

  • How the ADA applies to government and telecommunications
  • How to make facilities and sites accessible to disabled individuals
  • How the ADA relates to other laws that protect individuals with disabilities
  • And more

This course was created to educate you on the basic concepts of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), as well as the ADA Amendments Act of 2008 (ADAAA).   The information given in this course can be used by employers as a starting point to learn more about the ADA and begin to make sure they are in accordance with the law.   It can also be used by public entities, private entities, and others to gain an understanding of the ADA and what it means to the workplace.
