    President Bush signed into law the Americans with Disabilities Act on July 26, 1990. This is the world's first comprehensive civil rights law for people with disabilities. "Americans with disabilities are the largest, poorest, least employed, and least educated minority in America." The ADA is a bold and comprehensive mandate intended to eliminate one of the key barriers to independent living, discrimination. The ADA is a policy with ambitious goals. It is a policy that requires us to change our thinking about people with disabilities. The ADA demands that we focus on people, not disabilities and focus on what they can do, not on what they cannot do.

    Under the American with Disability Act (ADA)
    continually confront disbelief that they suffer from valid disabilities. Paruresis is a social anxiety condition mentioned in the DSM IV under the category 300.23, creating great difficulty urinating in public places. Paruresis inflicts persons in the employment context and in the prison context, when physically unable to provide specimens for urinalysis drug tests. Resultantly the inability to produce specimens on demand is deemed equivalent to testing positive or refusing to obey direct orders. As a direct consequence, persons applying for jobs are denied employment positions and prisoners receive disciplinary infractions. The unwillingness to provide reasonable accommodation is evident as there are alternative methods of conducting drug tests (such as oral fluid, sweat patch, or hair analysis), and urinalysis procedures are still used in drug testing programs. In this manner, illegal substances can be detected without engaging in discriminatory behavior towards persons with Paruresis as defined under the ADA.
    ADA Title I Employment (42 U.S.C. §§ 12101 et seq.) prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability in employment, State and local government, public accommodations, commercial facilities, transportation, and telecommunications, 29 C.F.R. § 1630.2(h). The ADA prohibits an employer from discriminating against a "qualified individual with a disability" based on the disability, 42 U.S.C. § 12112(a). For Employees, denied positions subsequent to their inability to perform urinalysis drug test, to establish a prima facie case under the ADA they must show: (1) that they have a disability; (2) that they were qualified for the jobs; and (3) that they were subject to an adverse employment decision because of their disabilities.

    Information about Disabilities
    The mission of JFK Partners is to promote the independence, inclusion, contribution, health, and well-being of people with disabilities and their families through consumer, community, and university partnerships. Through our work, we often find that there are numerous definitions of the concept of "disability." Below is a sampling of the many definitions of "disability." International Classification of Impairments, Disabilities, and Handicaps (ICIDH) Reference: International Classification of Impairments, Disabilities, and Handicaps: A manual of classification relating to the consequence of disease (1976) World Health Organization, Geneva. Definition: in the context of health experience, a disability is any restriction or lack (resulting from an impairment) of ability to perform an activity in the manner or within the range considered normal for a human being. Characteristics: Disability is characterized by excesses or deficiencies of customarily expected activity performance and behaviour, and these may be temporary or permanent, reversible or irreversible, and progressive or regressive. Disabilities may arise as a direct consequence of impairment or as a response by the individual, particularly psychologically, to a physical, sensory, or other impairment. Disability represents objectification of an impairment, and as such it reflects disturbances at the level of a person.

    Dear Faculty Member:
    As a University we are committed to working toward the goal of creating an accessible and welcoming environment for students who have disabilities. Although a great deal has already been done, further efforts are being made to improve the physical accessibility of the campus; a priority list of existing, inaccessible structures is being developed for action. Accessibility also means program access and, on an ongoing basis, the University endeavours to make the learning environment a rewarding and enriching one for students with various disabilities.

    Imagine having important needs and ideas to communicate, but being unable to express them. Perhaps feeling bombarded by sights and sounds, unable to focus your attention. Or trying to read or add but not being able to make sense of the letters or numbers.
    You may not need to imagine. You may be the parent or teacher of a child experiencing academic problems, or have someone in your family diagnosed as learning disabled. Or possibly as a child you were told you had a reading problem called dyslexia or some other learning handicap.
    Although different from person to person, these difficulties make up the common daily experiences of many learning disabled children, adolescents, and adults. A person with a learning disability may experience a cycle of academic failure and lowered self-esteem. Having these handicapsor living with someone who has themcan bring overwhelming frustration.

    Mental Adjustment
    How far should employers go to help someone with a psychiatric illness stay on the job?
    BY ELIZABETH GLEICK Irene Wozny, 40, is an attorney for the Maryland Department of Assessments and Taxation in Baltimore. She is fortunate enough to have found work she enjoys, but every so often she gets derailed by chronic major depression, a mental illness that can cause a loss of self-esteem, an inability to concentrate and a negative outlook on life. Wozny has been troubled by the disease for as long as she can remember. Last year she learned of an experimental program for depression run by the National Institute of Mental Health, but in order to participate, she needed to arrive at work an hour or two late every day for a month. She and her supervisor struck a deal: she would make up the lost time at the end of each day. "It's the first time I've had a boss who is understanding about this kind of thing," Wozny says. The path to such enlightenment, though, is never easyand most employers need some clear road markers along the way. Although the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 specifically prohibits any employer with 15 or more workers from discriminating against employees with mental or physical impairments, many managers have been quicker to install wheelchair ramps than to offer the kind of flexibility Wozny's boss did. That is why in March the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission issued guidelines to help employers navigate the fuzzy, sometimes unquantifiable arena of mental illness in the workplace. The guidelines, addressing recent case law, explain how employers should attempt to accommodate mental disabilities that don't directly compromise a worker's qualifications for the job.

    Questionnaires were mailed to 2,703 programs nationwide that deliver abuse-related services; 2200 came from the National Domestic Violence Hotline database of programs self-reporting wheelchair accessibility. We received 598 responses. Characteristics of Women with Disabilities Served by Abuse Programs
    • The most common number of women with physical, mental or sensory disabilities served by a program during the past 12 months was 20, but the number served varied widely from one program to another, ranging from to 12,000 women.
      The disability type most likely to receive services from an abuse program was mental illness, whereas programs were the least likely to serve those with visual or hearing impairments. On average, 10% of the women served by each program had physical impairments, 7% had mental retardation or developmental disabilities, 21% had mental illness, 2% had visual impairment, and 3% had hearing impairment. For nearly half of the programs, less than 1% of their clients served within the past year had physical impairments.
    Service Delivery
    • Abuse programs on average provided two services targeted to women with disabilities; 89% of abuse programs provided less than five special services for women with disabilities.
