The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was passed in 1990 and while we have made progress towards the full inclusion of people with disabilities, AE programs still have much to learn to comply fully with the law and support students with disabilities. 

The SABES Program Support PD Center offers ADA resources and training, in partnership with the New England ADA Center , on topics such as: the definition of disability; disability rights; ADA compliance; reasonable accommodations; disability etiquette; and auxiliary aids and services. 

See the Calendar and Resource Library sections for ADA resources and PD.
