April 3, 1:00 - 1:30 p.m. ET ADA Radio Show: Opioid Addiction and the ADA

ADA Live! (WADA) is a free monthly show broadcast nationally on the Internet hosted by the Southeast ADA Center.

From the Southeast ADA Center: In the next two episodes of ADA Live!, we will explore the opioid crisis from a number of different angles -- from treatment to the protections offered by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and from the justice system to legal and responsible use of opioids to treat chronic pain. In the first episode of this series, will focus on the treatment for opioid addiction and the protections under the ADA. Rebecca Williams, technical specialist of the Southeast ADA Center, will discuss the protections that people in treatment have under the ADA. Mike Yow & clinical staff of Fellowship Hall, will discuss the treatment approach Fellowship Hall uses, applying the Narcotics Anonymous principles and steps. This approach is often considered by professionals in the field of addiction as “the grandfather of treatment.”

April 4, 2:30 - 4:00 p.m. ET Free Webinar: Differences Between the ADA and ABA Accessibility Standards

This is a free webinar offered through a collaboration of the U.S. Access Board, the Great Lakes ADA Center, and the ADA National Network.

From the Great Lakes ADA Center: The Architectural Barriers Act (ABA) is the first federal law to address access to the built environment. Passed by Congress in 1968, it ensures access to many federally funded facilities to this day. The ABA greatly informed the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 and its requirements for access to facilities in the private and state and local government sectors. This session will compare the ABA and ADA and review differences between the accessibility standards issued under these laws. The presenter will explain how the ABA and ADA Accessibility Standards differ in application, scope, specific provisions, and enforcement. The relationship of these laws to other federal mandates that address facility access, such as the Rehabilitation Act and the Fair Housing Act, will also be covered.

Excerpt from the Pacific ADA Center: This webinar will review findings from new research conducted by New York University and the Pacific ADA Center on what local emergency managers in federal FEMA region 9 say they have done and can do to include people with disabilities in emergency planning, response, recovery, and mitigation.

The ADA Audio Conference is coordinated by the Great Lakes ADA Center on behalf of the ADA National Network.

From the Great Lakes ADA Center: Do you have questions regarding the employment provisions of the Americans with the Disabilities Act (ADA)? Is there an accommodation issue that you are confused about? Do you have questions about what constitutes a disability under the ADA? Are you clear about what constitutes “leave” as an accommodation under the ADA? What are the guidelines regarding the presence of companion animals and service animals in the workplace?

Join us for this session where you will have an opportunity to ask your question. We will be accepting questions in advance of the session. The first 25 questions submitted will be given priority and then we will take questions “live” during the session as well.
