This presentation will build on the introduction to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) given in the webinar, ADA-101. Intended for those new to the ADA or for those wanting a refresher, this webinar will explore the definition of disability under the Americans with Disabilities Act, its interpretation, and its application and meaning for individuals in different settings. It will also discuss how the ADA's definition of disability is often different from definitions used by service providers, federal programs, and advocates.
