The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in all areas of public life. To celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the ADA, this State of the Science Conference will highlight research related to successes and challenges in fulfilling the promise of the ADA.
Each day the virtual conference will feature a keynote speaker and research presentations focusing on a unique theme. Day 1 will focus on Employment and Economic Self-Sufficiency, Day 2 will focus on Community Development and Planning, and Day 3 will focus on Access and Inclusion. Days will last for 3 hours and 30 minutes and feature researchers from the ADA Regional Centers as well as external researchers.
