ADA Watch--Year One: A Report to the President and the Congress on Progress in Implementing the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Kramer (Ralph G.) & Associates.
The ADA Watch was established in 1991 to monitor implementation of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA). The ADA Watch covers all titles of the law, all regions of the country, and all sectors of the economy. This report summarizes major ADA Watch findings and recommendations from a study conducted from October 1991 to November 1992. The report discusses efforts to implement the ADA by the federal government, people with disabilities, covered entities, nonprofit organizations, and entrepreneurs. It describes reports of handicap discrimination and efforts to address discrimination problems. It presents descriptions of exemplary efforts to comply with the ADA, outlines areas in which technical assistance and information are needed, points out ADA issues requiring federal action, and provides a research agenda. Twenty-two findings and 15 recommendations are discussed. The report concludes that there has been substantial progress in implementing the ADA during its early stages, and no amendments to the law should be made at this time. Appendices contain lists of Department of Justice technical assistance grantees, demonstration projects, technical assistance centers, project summaries, and a list of related videocassettes. (JDD)
