What is the ADA?

The ADA is a comprehensive civil rights law designed to ensure equal opportunity for people with disabilities in all aspects of our society. The five titles of the ADA address disability discrimination in employment, participation in state and local government activities and services like state parks or local meetings, access to businesses open to the public such as hotels and restaurants, telecommunications access and other miscellaneous areas.
