The Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)

Published July 26, 2016

At Littman Krooks, we work to help individuals with disabilities achieve meaningful benefits and live a fulfilling life. According to U.S. Census data from 2010, 56.7% in the United States have a disability – 19% of the non-institutionalized population. A disability can occur at any point in one’s life. The law protects all of us. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the ADA Amendments Act of 2008 guarantee civil rights protections to individuals with disabilities—whether physical, cognitive or emotional– and prevent discrimination.

The law ensures equal opportunity for individuals with disabilities for access to public spaces, businesses, employment, transportation, state and local government programs and services, and telecommunications.
