The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) was enacted by Congress in 1990.  The ADA establishes a clear and comprehensive prohibition of discrimination on the basis of disability.  The ADA gives civil rights protections to individuals with disabilities similar to those provided to individuals on the basis of race, color, sex, national origin, age, and religion.  It guarantees equal opportunity for individuals with disabilities in public accommodations, employment, transportation, State and local government services, and telecommunications.

The ADA Amendments Act of 2008 made significant changes that became effective January 1, 2009.  The ADA as amended broadly defines "disability" encompassing more impairments without regard to mitigating measures such as: medication, prosthetic, assistive technology, reasonable accommodations, etc.
