Webinar Series: Accessibility Online
from the U.S. Access Board and the Great Lakes ADA Center

Description:

The next webinar in the U.S. Access Board’s free monthly series will take place April 4 from 2:30 – 4:00 (Eastern Time) and review differences between accessibility requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and those of the Architectural Barriers Act (ABA) which apply to federally funded facilities. Passed by Congress in 1968, the ABA is the first federal law to address access to the built environment. It greatly informed the ADA’s requirements for access to facilities in the private and state and local government sectors. This session will compare the ABA and ADA and review differences between the accessibility standards issued under these laws. It will highlight how the ABA and ADA Accessibility Standards differ in application, scope, specific provisions, and enforcement. The relationship of these laws to other federal mandates that address facility access, such as the Rehabilitation Act and the Fair Housing Act, will also be covered.
