Beyond just helping you navigate the lengthy 2010 ADA Standards document, the goal of this course is to provide thorough insight, clarification, and commentary on the important takeaways and exactly what you need to know about the new accessibility standards.
The purpose of the DOJ’s 2010 ADA Standards is to establish scoping and technical design requirements for the construction and alteration of facilities in order to ensure access to the built environment for people with disabilities. The Standards—which revised the 1991 ADA civil rights statute regulating accessibility standards —guarantees equal opportunity for people with disabilities in public accommodations, employment, transportation, government services, and telecommunications. It outlines the minimum accessibility requirements for state and local government agencies (Title II) and commercial facilities and places of public service and accommodation (Title III).
