1. History of Disability Legislation in America

This lecture will provide a chronological overview of the 100-year history of disability legislation in America that led to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and beyond. From forced sterilization to the independent living movement, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, the ADA and the most recent Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), learn about the people who were the catalyst of systematic change for people with disabilities and the disability rights movement. We will explore case law that continues to shape the reach of the ADA even today.
