Make A Difference
Opportunities to participate, provide comments, and impact disability research, rights, and laws.
The ADA National Network supports full inclusion for people with disabilities in all aspects of life. We are interested in how to better serve older people and Latinos / Hispanics with disabilities. The results of these assessments will help inform outreach to support people with disabilities in understanding their rights and awareness of services.
- Older Person Service Providers Needs Assessment
If you support older people with disabilities or medical challenges, we are seeking your input on how people get and use information about their rights under the ADA.
- Older Adults Needs Assessment
If you are an older person with a disability or an on-going health or medical concern that impacts your ability to participate in your community, we are looking for your invaluable input.
- Latinos / Hispanics ADA Needs Assessment
The ADA supports the full inclusion of people with disabilities in all aspects of life. We need your expert opinion in knowing the best way to serve Latinos / Hispanics with disabilities.
