ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act)

On July 26th 1990, the Americans with Disabilities Act was signed into law. This landmark piece of legislation has paved the way for Americans with disabilities to be fully included in our society. In celebration, NDSS has created and provided resources on what the ADA means for people with Down syndrome and other disabilities. Join NDSS in our effort and together we can create an equitable and inclusive society for people with disabilities.
