Accessibility: The Key To Equal Opportunity
Assurance of equal educational opportunity rests upon legal foundations established by
federal law, specifically the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 including Section 504, and the
Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. By federal law, a person with a disability is any
person who: 1) has a disability; 2) has a record of such disability; or 3) is regarded by
others to be disabled. A disability is a physical or mental impairment that substantially
limits one or more major life activities; such as self-care, walking, seeing, hearing,
speaking, breathing, or learning.
