Each regional center in the ADA National Network serves as a central, comprehensive resource on ADA issues in employment, public services, public accommodations, communications, and accessible information technology.
Each ADA Center works closely with local business, disability, government, rehabilitation, and education networks to provide ADA information and assistance, placing special emphasis on meeting the needs of small businesses and educational programs. The following services are provided by each ADA Center: Technical Assistance, Education and Training, Materials Dissemination, Information and Referral, Public Awareness, and Local Capacity Building.
