The Mayor’s Office for People with Disabilities (MOPD) and the Southwest ADA Center, are offering a workshop to reacquaint or initiate your knowledge of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), during this 25th ADA Anniversary year. This full day session will help increase your knowledge and understanding of the general principles of the ADA and the ADA Amendments Act of 2008 (ADAAA). The ADA Amendments Act (the ADAAA) has changed the landscape of the Americans with Disabilities Act. This training covers who is covered by the ADAAA, and what the changes mean for employers, government entities, places of public accommodation, and individuals with disabilities. We will discuss the Title I, Title II and Title III under the ADA and how they apply to the areas of work you are doing with and around the community. We will also cover the Fair Housing Act (FHA) and discuss emerging issues and give guidance and resources as to how you can help.
