  • The 1992 Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) established that equal access for Deaf persons is a right—not a privilege. Under the ADA, all public and private organizations must offer Deaf persons and persons with hearing disabilities access to the same services and benefits available to individuals without disabilities. The ADA refers to providing equal access as making “reasonable accommodation.” Reasonable accommodation — as it relates to employment — is any modification to a job or work environment that enables an employee with a disability to perform essential job functions and have the same privileges and benefits enjoyed by employees who are not disabled. Reasonable accommodation — as it relates to public accommodations — includes any modification in procedures or environment that gives an individual with a disability access to the same public services and facilities available to individuals without disabilities. The following are examples of reasonable accommodation for Deaf persons: sign language interpretation, closed captioning, and TTY access. The ADA prohibits discrimination against any individual with a disability. Public and private entities must do their best to provide reasonable accommodation for Deaf persons unless it can be demonstrated that doing so would create undue hardship.

  • The Civil Rights Act of 1964 and The Rehabilitation Act of 1973 also prohibit discrimination against individuals with disabilities.

  • As a Woman-Owned, certified Small Disadvantaged Business (SDB), PINS is easily accessible to government agencies.
