Denying an individual access to programs and services because of a disability is against the law. Unfortunately, people with disabilities can face those denials every day.
People who have disabilities have a right to be free from discrimination in public services and in private services that are open to the public. People are considered to be disabled if they have a physical or mental impairment that limits one or more major life activity. For everyone, but especially for children, learning is a major life activity.
Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability in programs and services that receive federal funds. The Americans with Disabilities Act prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability in public accommodations in general, even those that receive no federal funds.
