February 14, 2014
Source: ADA National Network
The ADA National Network launched its new, user-friendly national website this week at adata.org. The NIDRR-funded ADA National Network provides information, guidance and training on the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), tailored to meet the needs of business, government and individuals at local, regional and national levels. The new website allows visitors to explore resources about the ADA by audience and topic, to learn about the services offered by the ADA National Network, and to locate their regional ADA Center.
Visitors to the website can order publications developed by the ADA National Network as well as by other ADA-focused organizations, browse an extensive FAQ (frequently asked questions) database, search for information through a focused ADA Portal, read current ADA news, and locate training and awareness events about the ADA. The website is designed to meet and exceed section 508 standards. Visitors are encouraged on every page to provide feedback on ways to improve the website.
About the ADA National Network
The ADA National Network consists of 10 regional centers and an ADA Knowledge Translation Center. The regional centers are distributed throughout the United States to provide local assistance and foster implementation of the ADA. Funded by the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR), the ADA National Network provides information, guidance and training on the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), tailored to meet the needs of business, government and individuals at local, regional and national levels. The Network is not an enforcement or regulatory agency, but a helpful resource supporting the mission of the ADA to "make it possible for everyone with a disability to live a life of freedom and equality."
The 10 regional centers along with the ADA Knowledge Translation Center, work together to develop projects and events of national significance. Each regional center also focuses on the specific needs of the residents who reside within its service area. The regional nature of the ADA National Network is critical to ensuring the network can adequately support the diverse population of ADA Stakeholders throughout the country.
To learn more about the ADA law and implementation, you can search for comprehensive ADA information, services, products, training and guidelines on the National Network website (http://adata.org/), or visit your Regional ADA National Network Center Website (http://adata.org/national-network) for information about local events and support. Journalists should visit our Media Kit (http://adata.org/media-kit).
