Summary
The book will be useful both in orienting those who need a general sense of the law and its mandates and in supplying a reference for specific areas of inquiry, such as how technology can be used to provide reasonable accommodations ... The book addresses itself to a range of questions. First, what exactly does the ADA require? What is the basis of those requirements? What do we know about creating a world that supports, promotes, and enables persons with disabilities to live independent, productive lives? What does the research tell us? What do the experts tell us? What is the best thinking in the emerging field of disability research? Furthermore, how can we use the knowledge we have to implement the ADA? -Introd
