Americans with Disabilities Act – ADA
Reasonable Modification Policy
The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) prohibits discrimination and ensures equal opportunity for persons with disabilities in employment, State and local government services, public accommodations, commercial facilities, and transportation.
A disability is defined as a permanent or temporary physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities. The ADA law also protects those who have a record, or who are regarded as having an impairment.
Aiken Area Council on Aging (AACOA) is committed to providing equal access and opportunity to qualified individuals with disabilities in all programs, services, and activities. AACOA recognizes that, in order to have equally effective opportunities and benefits, individuals with disabilities may need reasonable modifications to policies and procedures. AACOA will adhere to all applicable federal and state laws, regulations, and guidelines with respect to providing reasonable modifications, as necessary, to afford equal access to programs for persons with disabilities. AACOA does not discriminate on the basis of disability in admission to, participation in, or receipt of services and benefits under any transit program or activity. AACOA will take appropriate steps to ensure that persons with disabilities have an equal opportunity to participate.
No qualified individual with a disability shall, by reason of such disability, be excluded from participation in or be denied the benefits of the services, programs, or activities, or be subject to discrimination by AACOA.
