ADA report card gives Indiana a 'C'

In the 2010 ADA in Your Community poll, 835 people ranked the implementation of the Americans with Disabilities Act in communities across Indiana.  The survey participants included people with disabilities, their family members and advocates.

The ADA-Indiana, the Governor’s Council for People with Disabilities, Indiana Protection and Advocacy Services, and the Indiana Institute on Disability and Community worked together to conduct the survey, analyze the results, and prepare a report card.

The results of the survey showed that participants believe some of the biggest issues for ADA implementation in Indiana include making more employment opportunities available, providing accessible transportation, educating businesses and government officials about the ADA, and providing accommodations for employment. ¬†Overall, Indiana received a grade of a ‘C’ for the report card.
