Overview of ADA National Network

The ADA National Network was established by the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR) in 1991. The ten regional ADA Centers are a comprehensive resource on the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), providing information on issues in employment, state and local government services, public accommodations, and communications.

The ADA National Network offers the following core services:

  • Technical Assistance: Answer questions about the ADA via a national toll free hotline at 1-800-949-4232 [voice/tty]. All calls are strictly confidential.

  • Education and Training: Provide customized training and distance education opportunities about the ADA and disability-related laws to disability organizations, State and local government agencies, and private businesses.

  • Materials Dissemination: Distribute publications with accurate information about the ADA. Provide up to date ADA information via websites, email, discussion lists, newsletters, and printed materials.

  • Information and Referral: Provide referrals to local organizations for advocacy assistance or issues outside of our work scope.
  • Public Awareness: Promote the ADA in a positive manner in media outlets.

  • Local Capacity Building: Work closely with local business, disability, governmental, rehabilitation, and other professional networks to assist with ADA efforts in the local communities.
