Managing ADA Changes

DOJ’s revised regulations went into effect March 15, 2011. The 2010 accessibility standards were mandatory starting March 15, 2012, for most purposes. ADA One can help you not only understand the new regulations but also apply the unchanged provisions to changing circumstances.

  • Learn the basics
  • Delve more deeply
  • Plan for compliance and prioritize changes.

State and Local Governments

ADA One can help you comply with Title II and section 504 while coping with

  • new requirements
  • changing environments
  • fewer resources
  • higher expectations

Higher Education

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act apply to almost all colleges, universities, and trade schools. The laws mandate an equal opportunity for students with disabilities – they’re entitled to benefit from all the services of those institutions and to use campus facilities.

Health Care

Health care providers face increased scrutiny by advocacy groups; the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and the Department of Justice, which began a Barrier-Free Health Care Initiative in 2012 in partnership with U.S. Attorneys’ offices. ADA One can help you avoid or respond to complaints or compliance reviews through guidance, training, and assessments such as self-evaluations or gap analyses.

Self-Evaluations and other assessments

Compliance generally requires planning for it, and ADA compliance is no different. But do you need to do a new or updated self-evaluation, transition plan, or barrier removal plan? ADA One can guide you in deciding whether or not to create or update a plan, to implement revised policies or training, or to take other steps short of a full-fledged new plan. And we can help you put the approach in place.
