Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)

The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (“ADA”) is another federal law that protects students with disabilities. Because it is extremely similar to Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, parents should concern themselves with either the 504 or the IDEA for the purposes of protecting their child with Barth syndrome (BTHS) in the public-school system. Since the ADA might come up as a topic when discussing the legal protections for students with BTHS, however, parents should know of its existence as another law written to protect individuals with disabilities in the United States.
