ADA Technical Assistance Programs

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) opened new opportunities for persons with disabilities. It also placed new responsibilities on employers, transit and communications systems, state and local governments, and public accommodations. To assist covered parties in understanding and complying with the ADA, the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR) funds ten regional ADA Centers that provide technical assistance, training, and resource referral on all aspects of the ADA. Their work is complemented by other NIDILRR ADA-related programs.

Tetra Society – The purpose of Tetra is to recruit skilled volunteer engineers and technicians to create assistive devices for people with disabilities. This unique program was developed in response to difficulties that people experience in their search for greater independence and integration within their communities. The solutions are often simple but can change someone’s life. Tetra recognizes that people are not handicapped by their disabilities but by obstacles or barriers in their living environment. Volunteer engineers, design technicians, and health professionals work one to one with individuals to make assistive aids or modifications to their environment so that greater independence can be achieved.
