The Americans with Disabilities Act and Head Start: Practical Strategies for Developing Compliance Plans.
Quarterly Resource, v7 n1 1992-93
This issue of the "Quarterly Resource" reviews the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the act's implications for Head Start programs, and offers suggestions for developing plans for complying with the provisions of the act. After a brief introduction, an overview of ADA is presented, followed by several examples and cost estimates of reasonable accommodations. Aspects of Title I (the section of the act that focuses on employment) and Title III (the section of the act that focuses on the elimination of physical and communication barriers in the community) are discussed in a question and answer format. Four symbols used to indicate facilities or services for the disabled are shown. The publication also includes information about how to use a telephone device for the deaf or a text telephone to communicate with hearing people. A checklist for identifying accessibility problems in existing facilities, strategies for developing a plan for complying with the ADA's provisions, and guidelines for planning meetings or conferences are also provided.
