ADA History and Overview

The ADA represents a historic milestone, as it is the first comprehensive civil rights law focused on persons with disabilities. The ADA opens the doors to participation in employment, state and local government programs, public accommodations, telecommunications, and transportation by prohibiting discrimination against people with disabilities, their families, and friends. This course goes on a journey through the history of the ADA. We will summarize the history of Civil Rights Laws and the ADA in the United States, recognize the five titles of the ADA and its enforcement agencies, define disability, and examine rights and responsibilities of people with disabilities. (Approximate time: 60 Min)
