The ADA National Network DISABILITY LAW Handbook:

Think you may need to contact WACDA regarding help or legal assistance about your rights under the Americans with Disabilities Act? Take a look through this handbook to start and see if you can find the answers you need here.

This handbook was created through the Southwest ADA Center is a program of ILRU (Independent Living Research Utilization) at TIRR Memorial Hermann in Houston, Texas. 


The Southwest ADA Center is part of a national network of ten regional ADA Centers that provide up-to-date information, referrals, resources, and training on the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The centers serve a variety of audiences, including businesses, employers, government entities, and individuals with disabilities. You can reach your regional ADA Center via a national toll free hotline at 1-800-949-4232 (voice/TTY) or visit the ADA National Network website at www.adata.org.

This book was created in 2013 and the information found in it is intended solely as informal guidance and is neither a determination of your legal rights or responsibilities under the Americans with Disabilities Act or other laws, nor binding on any agency with enforcement responsibility under the ADA and other disability-related laws.

Inappropriate Questions Under the ADA: 

In a collaborative program between the Southwest ADA Center, Great Lakes ADA Center and members of the
ADA National Network, WACDA helped deatil what employers and other entities are legally allowed too ask or not about an individual's disability.

 

If you think you may have been or are being asked inappropriate questions under the ADA, read through this presentation and see if any ambiguities are addressed in our presentation and define your rights more clearly. 

Outreach and Education

We inform the community on disability rights and participate in outreach programs. Contact us if you are interested in having us participate in such events.
