Arc, Arlington, TX.
Basic information about child care settings and the Americans with Disabilities Act is presented in a question-and-answer format. The following questions are addressed: "What is the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)?"; "What is the definition of an individual with a disability under the ADA?"; "What does the ADA mean for a child care center or family day care home?"; "Are there benefits to including children with disabilities in a child care center or family day home?"; "Will Title III of the ADA create changes in child care programs?"; "What do 'readily achievable' and 'undue burden' mean?"; "What are 'auxiliary aids and services'?"; "Are any changes required in the transportation service a center provides to children?"; "What resources are available to help child care centers accommodate children with disabilities?"; "Since centers may incur additional costs in complying with the ADA, what help is available?"; and "How can child care centers meet the needs of both children with disabilities and children without disabilities?" Four organizational resources and three references are also provided. (DB)
