About ADA Now

ADA Now is an on-line magazine, published quarterly, that provides information and resources on the Americans with Disabilities Act. ADA Now is primarily designed for ADA Coordinators working in state and local government as well as business and education. However, anyone involved in implementing the ADA or who is affected by the ADA will find useful information.

Each quarter, ADA Now will focus on a single topic providing information in user-friendly formats. Our goal for each publication:

We encourage readers to forward issues to others. Feel free to distribute and use our articles and materials in your own trainings and outreach actvities. Many of the documents are designed for just that purpose. We do ask, however, that you credit ADA Now as the source.

ADA Now is developed by the ADA Coordinator Training Certification Program (ACTCP).
