What is the definition of disability under the ADA?

The ADA defines a person with a disability as a person who has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities. This includes people who have a record of such an impairment, even if they do not currently have a disability. It also includes individuals who do not have a disability but are regarded as having a disability. The ADA also makes it unlawful to discriminate against a person based on that person’s association with a person with a disability. It is important to remember that in the context of the ADA, “disability” is a legal term rather than a medical one. Because it has a legal definition, the ADA’s definition of disability is different from how disability is defined under some other laws, such as for Social Security Disability related benefits.

"Celebrating ADA30: A Discussion on Youth Employment from the ADA Generation"

Friday, July 24, 2020
1:00 – 2:00 p.m. ET

In times of great change, we must also celebrate progress toward the goal of equal opportunity for people with disabilities. July marks the 30th anniversary of the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The young people with disabilities who came of age after the passage of this landmark legislation are often called the "ADA Generation."

Join EARN on July 24, 2020, from 1:00-2:00 p.m. ET for a webinar featuring a panel discussion with members of the ADA Generation sharing their experiences in the workplace. Panelists will also discuss best practices for recruiting and hiring young people with disabilities, such as offering internships, apprenticeship, and mentorship opportunities, and how to ensure these programs are accessible for everyone. 

Participation is free, but space is limited, so be sure to register today!
