About the ADA National Network
This course is a project of the ADA National Network which has been providing information, training, materials, and technical assistance on the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) since 1991 with funding from the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR).
The ADA National Network consists of ten (10) regional ADA Centers that provide information, training, and technical assistance to employers, people with disabilities, educational entities, and others with rights and responsibilities under the ADA. It is a central, comprehensive resource on ADA issues in employment, public services, public accommodations, communications, and accessible information technology.
To contact your ADA Center, call the national toll-free ADA hotline at 1-800-949-4232 [voice/tty] or visit the website: ADA National Network [http://adata.org].
The ADA Centers work closely with local business, disability, government, rehabilitation, and education networks to provide ADA information and assistance, placing special emphasis on meeting the needs of small businesses and educational programs. Programs vary in each region, but the ADA Centers provide the following core services: Technical Assistance, Education and Training, Materials Dissemination, Information and Referral, Public Awareness, and Local Capacity Building.
