Abstract:
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is something that has created both freedom and confusion. There are those who are affected by the law, have family members who are, or have a basic understanding of the law. These varying degrees of knowledge help play a part in the confusion surrounding the law. Add to that the fact that the ADA is constantly being amended and it is no wonder that misunderstanding ensues. This paper sets out to see where the disorientation of the ADA is taking place, why it is happening, and what can be done to change it. Interpreting this law can seem like an insurmountable feat but to comprehend the law, its history must first be understood. It is important to distinguish between the law and the people it protects. They are not mutually exclusive or inclusive.
