Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)

"When my grandson had to leave a daycare center because they were not equipped to handle special needs, I focused my research on our rights under ADA. I have to admit, I'm still trying to find the final answer. Are daycare providers obligated to provide an aid for my child"? If you have more info please contact me."

Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is federal legislation that extends civil rights protections to individuals with disabilities. Child care programs are affected by the public accommodations sections as well as the employment provisions. ADA applies to privately owned as well as publicly operated child care. Child care programs operated by religious organizations are exempt from some of the ADA provisions. For more information, call the ADA Information Line at 800/514-0301 (voice); 800/514-0383 (TDD).
