Second Sense - Beyond Vision Loss

Learn About the ADA Great Lakes Center

Wednesday, March 16 - 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm

Have you ever felt you had been discriminated against because of your disability and thought you might be protected by the Americans with Disabilities Act? Where would you go to find the information to determine your rights?

After the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act in 1990, a national network of technical and information centers were formed to help educate and provide guidance to businesses, employers, state and local governments and those with disabilities on the implementation of the ADA. The ADA Great Lakes Center, located on the campus of the University of Illinois Chicago, is one of ten centers across the country focusing on the specific needs of people with disabilities in six states in the upper Midwest. The centers provide comprehensive information on disability issues and the ADA regarding housing, healthcare, transportation, education, communications and many more.

To help us learn more about this valuable resource, we are excited to welcome Pete Berg, project coordinator for technical assistance and employer outreach from the ADA Great Lakes Center. Pete will provide an overview of the purpose and goals of the organization and how you may use their resources to support you and the implementation of the ADA.

You’ll learn about:

  • the technical assistance services provided by the center
  • training opportunities
  • helpful resources for people with vision loss
