The Implications of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 for Rehabilitation Psychologists: Guest Editor Overview
Bruyere, Susanne M.
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 provides civil rights protection to individuals with disabilities similar to that provided to other individuals on the basis of race, sex, national origin, and religion. It guarantees equal opportunities for individuals with disabilities in the areas of: employment, state and local government services, public transportation, privately operated transportation available to the public, places of public accommodation, and telephone services offered to the general public. The provisions of the ADA have relevance to psychologists in terms of their practice, research, and training.
