What is the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)?

More than 50 million Americans have disabilities. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a Federal civil rights law designed to make activities that most Americans take for granted accessible to disabled people. By making commercial ADA improvements, businesses can enable people with disabilities to enjoy such everyday activities as having a meal at a neighborhood restaurant, shopping at a local boutique, or going to see a movie with friends.

What Businesses Are Covered by the ADA?

The ADA Standards for Accessible Design applies to businesses that the ADA considers to be “public accommodations.” Generally, any business that provides goods or services to the public fits the definition of a public accommodation. Retail stores, restaurants, theaters, hotels, doctors’ and dentists’ offices, and private museums are all considered public accommodations.
