What Does Ada Stand For?
The Americans with Disabilities Act is a civil rights legislation that was passed in 1990 to prohibit discrimination against people who have disabilities. As described by the ADA National Network “the purpose of the law is to make sure that people with disabilities have the same rights and opportunities as everyone else.”
“The ADA gives civil rights protections to individuals with disabilities similar to those provided to individuals as the basis of race, color, sex, national origin, age, and religion,” their website continues, “It guarantees equal opportunity for individuals with disabilities in public accommodations, employment, transportation, state and local government services, and telecommunications.”
According to the act, certain requirements for public accommodations and commercial facilities in the United States must be made. While the standards do not apply to private residences, all public and commercial buildings must comply with ADA requirements. Naturally, such requirements include wheelchair accessibility.
