On June 22, 1999 , the United States Supreme Court held in Olmstead v. L.C. that unjustified segregation of persons with disabilities constitutes discrimination in violation of title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The Court held that public entities must provide community-based services to persons with disabilities when:
- such services are appropriate
- the affected persons do not oppose community-based treatment
- community-based services can be reasonably accommodated, taking into account the resources available to the public entity and the needs of others who are receiving disability services from the entity
This webinar will examine what the data says has happened nearly 28 years after that decision. The Americans with Disabilities Act Participatory Action Research Consortium (ADA-PARC), a federally funded research project examining participation disparities experienced by people with disabilities post ADA & Olmstead has assembled nationally recognized speakers to present the issue in four ways.
