ADA Information, Training & Guidance
The Southeast ADA Center (formerly known as Southeast DBTAC) is your leader in providing information, training, and guidance on the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and disability access tailored to the needs of business, government, and individuals at local, state, and regional levels. We also conduct research to reduce and eliminate barriers to employment and economic self-sufficiency and to increase the civic and social participation of Americans with disabilities.
We are one of ten regional centers in the ADA National Network funded since 1991 by the National Institute on Disability & Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR) and a project of the Burton Blatt Institute (BBI) of Syracuse University.
We are located in Atlanta, Georgia and serve as the regional office for an extended leadership network of Local and State Affiliates from eight (8) states in the U.S. Southeast Region:
