Noongom (today) marks the 22nd anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, ensuring equitable access and opportunities for all people in the United States. You can find the entire text of the act, with its current amendments, here: http://www.ada.gov/pubs/ada.htm
How are students and employees with disabilities served by this act here at Leech Lake Tribal College? We have ADA-compliant structures that include ramps, push-button door openers, and accomodate wheelchairs, walkers, and other mobility assistances and that ensure people with mobility issues can access and use our facilities. We have adaptive technologies that accomodate the needs of individuals with sight and hearing impairments. For students with cognitive or learning disabilities, our Academic and Student Services departments can provide note-taking help, tutoring, a minimized-distraction testing environment, reading assistance, and many other services to help all learners on their educational journey.
The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 is considered a major piece of civil rights legislation for its work in breaking down barriers, overcoming discrimination, and ensuring access and opportunities for all people in the United States.
