Almost everyone will experience disabilities at some point during his/her life. This course is designed to provide you with a basic understanding of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) and the ADA Amendments Act of 2008 (ADAAA). Besides the history of ADA, you will learn what constitutes a disability, who is a qualified individual with a disability, and what might be reasonable accommodations for a disabled individual. In addition, you will become familiar with various federal laws related to disability rights.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials. This course qualifies for Health, Safety and Welfare (HSW) credits.
