Today marks the 27th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act. The ADA is a civil law that helps protect against discrimination and ensures opportunity for persons with disabilities in employment, State and local government services, public accommodations.

These laws help to give those with disabilities access to accommodations to better access to services for example being in school and needing access to additional time on taking test or someone who can help read the test out to you to better ensure you understand what the questions are on the test.

There was also some reversions which extends the ADA as well as protecting those in the workplace which is needed to prevent discrimination or not having access to assistive technologies which could help an employee who has different needs.

Numerous groups as well as senators are celebrating the 27th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities. You can find out more about the ADA at https://www.ada.gov.
