Our speakers from the ADA National Network collected “commonly asked questions” received by the ADA Centers as well as those submitted by individuals regarding effective communication, health care services, transportation, modifications in policies and procedures, eligibility criteria, access to programs and services and more. A resource document identifying sources for additional clarification on these issues from applicable federal agencies is provided as a supplement to the session.
