On April 19, tune in to an informative audio conference for a look at community participation and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). On June 22, 1999, the United States Supreme Court held in Olmstead v. L.C. that unjustified segregation of persons with disabilities constitutes discrimination in violation of title II of the ADA. The Court held that public entities must provide community-based services to persons with disabilities when such services are appropriate; and the affected persons do not oppose community-based treatment; and community-based services can be reasonably accommodated, taking into account the resources available to the public entity and the needs of others who are receiving disability services from the entity. Learn about what has happened 18 years after that decision.
