Anniversary of American Disabilities Act

The American Disabilities Act was signed into law on July 26, 1990 and celebrates its 32st anniversary this month! The original ADA brought welcome changes to many areas of physical environments and services for persons with physical, emotional, and intellectual differences. The law and its application continues to evolve to ensure equality for all in new technologies, cultural changes and more.

At KET we are dedicated to refining and building accessible content that can be utilized by all persons. Some current features in our online adult education courses include changeable background colors, text size adjustments, read aloud functions, translation and word look-up abilities. We continue to make upgrades to alternative text and descriptions, forms, videos and more.

Some ADA, IDEA and web accessibility requirements might impact the way you deliver services to your learners. To find out more visit the ADA national training website.
