Federal Disability Laws Including Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA)

Division of Community Health Promotion

While the Americans with Disabilities Act is the most widely known of the Federal disability rights laws, it is by no means the only one or the most important one.  There are a whole host of other laws that persons who are deaf or hard of hearing might want to know about.  The Department of Justice's Guide to Disability Rights Laws.  General sources of disability rights information, statute citations, and the following laws are covered in the Guide in addition to the ADA.  Every disability rights law is not covered in the Guide.  The guide is not intended to substitute for the advise of a qualified and licensed legal professional.
