Many of our web sites currently meet Section 508 accessibility standards. Furthermore, we continue to work towards making all of our web sites accessible. Thank you very much for your patience during this process.

Questions and Answers
As defined by the ADA, a disability is a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits a major life activity such as walking, seeing, hearing, learning, breathing, caring for oneself, or working. The ADA protects three classes of people with disabilities: those who have a disability; those who have a record of having a disability; and those who are regarded as having a disability, whether or not they actually have one, if their being perceived as having one results in discrimination.
