Today, CEC honors the 21st anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), historic civil rights legislation that upholds the rights of individuals with disabilities. With nearly one in five Americans living with disabilities, CEC takes this day to reflect on the great progress made and future achievements yet to come.
In recognition of the anniversary of the ADA, the Obama Administration announced its plan to release a comprehensive strategic plan to improve compliance with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, which requires that federal agencies' electronic and information technology be accessible to people with disabilities, both inside and outside the government.
How has the ADA impacted you, your students, and your community? Comment below!
