Welcome to ADA Solutions, LLC.

ADA Solutions, LLC. is a company dedicated to making the web a better place. Through the use of intelligent web design, we venture to make the World Wide Web a medium accessible to all walks of life. ADA Compliant web design, then, is our goal.

Many companies thrive on their ability to do business in the forum known as the Internet, however, do not realize the responsibility they have when doing so.  We at ADA Solutions, LLC. strive to help businesses, large and small, become compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) by providing both consultation services as well as ADA Complaint Web-design.

In 1998, Congress amended the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 to reflect the newly emerging focus on technology. The amended act added provisions requiring federal agencies' electronic and information technology be accessible to persons with disabilities, including employees and members of the public. Currently, the law applies to all federal agencies as they develop, procure, maintain, and/or use electronic and information technology. In addition, Section 508 of the act also assures that people with disabilities in the general public have equal access to federal government information. While state governments are not directly subject to Section 508, Section 504 of the Act prohibits discrimination against persons with disabilities in any federally funded programs or activities. It requires that programs receiving federal funds must be accessible to individuals with disabilities. And while Section 504 does not specifically address electronic and information technology accessibility issues, it may be inferred that federally funded state programs have some responsibility to meet the requirements of Section 508.

The U.S. Department of Justice issued an opinion in September 1996 stating that the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) Titles II and III require state and local governments and the business sector to provide effective communication whenever they communicate through the Internet. This effective communication rule applies to covered entities using the Internet for communications regarding their programs, goods, or services, since they must be prepared to offer those communications via an accessible medium.

Usability of information technology is a serious issue for citizens with disabilities. Web pages that are not designed to be accessible bar individuals with disabilities from participating in and reaping the benefits of e-government and e-commerce. It is only a matter of time before this rule will apply to ALL entities doing business on the internet.  Why wait until this becomes a mandate, take the initiative now and avoid potential lawsuits or settlements.  We can help you make the web a better place by ensuring ADA Compliance. Give us a try!

Is Your Site ADA-Compliant ...
or a Lawsuit-in-Waiting?

by Cynthia D. Waddell and Kevin Lee Thomason

An estimated 48.9 million people, or 19.4 percent of the non-institutionalized civilians in the United States, have a disability” according to the President’s Committee on Employment of People with Disabilities (http://www.pcepd.gov/pubs/ek97/facts.htm).   That’s nearly one out of five -- a lot of people.  So it’s not surprising that a few years ago Congress passed the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
