This publication is intended to serve not only the disability community, but
the community at large as well. We invite you to apply the information in
these pages. Enactment of the Americans with Disabilities Act reflects an
understanding by Congress, the President and the American people as a whole
that the integration of people with disabilities into the mainstream of
American life is not only right, but it also will benefit all in our society.
By your recognition of rights already available to people with disabilities,
you will help speed and smooth that integration.
