Summary

This paper outlines key elements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) as the ADA pertains to businesses, public accommodations, transportation, and telecommunications. Implications of the legislation for postsecondary education institutions are then explored. The paper indicates that the ADA demands virtually the same standards for compliance in the employment area as Sections 503 and 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. Implications include renewed attention to disability access to facilities and programs, and increased use of campus facilities and programs by individuals with disabilities as transportation access improves. Differences between Section 504 and the ADA are analyzed, focusing on requirements for physical access in new construction or major renovations. Four publications on postsecondary education compliance with Section 504 and the ADA are described. Several government agencies and publications offering assistance on ADA requirements are listed.
