Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is the Bill of Rights for individuals with disabilities.
The ADA has five titles, two of which directly affect governmental entities. Title I prohibits discrimination in all aspects of employment, and Title II prohibits discrimination in providing public services, programs and activities. Both titles require a public entity to make reasonable accommodations and/or modifications to individuals with disabilities to allow them to participate fully in public employment and public services.
