The goal of the Americans with Disabilities Act National Network (ADANN) social media channels is to connect and engage with the community, provide hands-on assistance relating to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) to our audiences by promoting the regional ADA Centers and technical assistant services, disseminate new resources and materials from internal and external partners, and to participate in awareness campaigns related to disability.
The ADANN provides information, guidance, and training on how to implement the ADA in order to support the mission of the ADA to assure equality of opportunity, full participation, independent living, and economic self-sufficiency for individuals with disabilities.
The ADANN consists of 10 regional ADA Centers and an ADA Knowledge Translation Center. The regional ADA Centers are distributed throughout the United States to provide local assistance and foster implementation of the ADA. Funded by the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR), the ADANN provides information, guidance, and training on the ADA, tailored to meet the needs of businesses, government, and individuals at local, regional and national levels. The ADANN is not an enforcement or regulatory agency, but a helpful resource supporting the ADA's mission to "make it possible for everyone with a disability to live a life of freedom and equality."
The 10 regional ADA Centers along with the ADA Knowledge Translation Center, work together to develop projects and events of national significance. Each regional ADA Center also focuses on the specific needs of the residents who reside within its service area. The regional nature of the ADANN is critical to ensuring the network can adequately support the diverse population of ADA Stakeholders throughout the country.
