Celebrating 30 Years of the ADA: A Stuttering Perspective

July 26 @ 3:00 pm EDT

The Americans with Disabilites Act (ADA) was enacted on July 26, 1990 to protect Americans with Disabilities from educational and employment discrimination. The ADA allows for reasonable accommodations to be requested and implemented, which makes the ADA different from other Civil Rights Acts. The goal is to ensure that persons with disabilities are afforded the same rights and opportunities as non-disabled individuals. Many PWS have found protections through the ADA but many may not be aware of available protections. This dynamic and interactive webinar will celebrate the past 30 years of ADA accomplishments and look ahead to the ADA continuing to foster inclusion in schools, work, and beyond.
