A Place to Start
For those who are unfamiliar with this field of study and are not sure where to begin, visit the link below for a primer on the ADA.
The Department of Justice revised its regulations implementing the ADA in September 2010. The new rules clarify issues that arose over the previous 20 years and contain new requirements, including the 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design (2010 Standards). This document provides general guidance to help understand and comply with the ADA's requirements.
