About

Overview

Young people with disabilities often face challenges as they prepare for middle school, high school, and the workplace. This insightful volume reassures youth with disabilities that they aren't alone and helps them understand, and use, their rights under the law that was created to protect them: the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Readers will find detailed yet accessible explanations of the ADA and how it applies to them, along with tips to help them obtain the accommodations they need to reach their full potential as students, employees, and members of the community.
