The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) is a law that was signed by President George H. W. Bush, and later amended with changes effective January 1, 2009. Its basic purpose is to protect the civil rights of people with disabilities in employment and access to goods and services. Since its inception, the ADA has had a profound affect on the sign industry.
The ADA covers a wide range of disabilities, from physical conditions affecting mobility, stamina, sight, hearing, and speech, as well as conditions such as emotional illness and learning disorders.
