The American with Disabilities Act (ADA) was enacted in 1990. Its purpose was to prevent disability-based discrimination in government, employment, commercial facilities, transportation, telecommunications and public accommodations. The ADA also seeks to prevent discrimination arising from certain barriers, failures to make modifications to existing facilities, overbearing rules and polices or practices that result in lesser services to disabled individuals.

Under 42 U.S. Code 12102, an individual is disabled when he or she has a physical or mental impairment that limits one or more major life activity, there is a record of such impairment or such individual is regarded as having such impairment. The ADA does not expressly name all impairments that comprise of a disability. However, the disability definition expanded with the ADA Amendments Act of 2008 to include an even broader range of individuals with disabilities, such as those with episodic impairments or other terminal illnesses if they substantially limit one or major life activity.
The ADA is comprised of four major titles, which include:
- Title I Employment
- Title II State and Local Government Activities and Public Transportation
- Title III: Places of Public Accommodations
- Title IV: Telecommunication Services
