The Great Plains ADA Center is part of the ADA National Network, funded by the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR) to provide technical assistance, information, and training on the Americans with Disabilities Act and related disability laws.
Established in 1991, we serve individuals, families and entities of Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, and Nebraska. We combine expertise on ADA federal guidelines with years of hands-on experience to provide technical assistance, training, and products that are effective and user-friendly.
Our staff receive continual training and updates on all areas of the ADA and related disability laws from key agencies involved in the ADA including the U.S. Access Board, the U.S Department of Justice, and the EEOC; giving us the depth and breadth of knowledge required to provide an array of comprehensive services tailored to meet your specific needs.
A unique service of the Great Plains ADA Center services is a toll-free information line. Our staff is available to answer questions, provide resources, and clarify issues as the need arises. The ADA Information Line is open Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m to 5:00 p.m. Consumers can also submit questions on-line.
The Great Plains ADA Center provides basic to
advanced level workshops on all areas covered by
the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). These
workshops can be specifically tailored to the needs
and time constraints of your group or organization.
The Great Plains ADA Center has access to the
latest and most current information on new and
proposed regulations through our long standing
relationship with the key federal agencies involved
in implementing and enforcing the ADA. Our training
always reflects the most current information available
on all areas of the ADA and related disability laws.
The Great Plains ADA Center provides numerous documents that are free or available at a nominal cost. These materials are developed or approved by the federal agencies that enforce ADA regulations such as the Department of Justice. Documents can also be downloaded from this website.
Our staff takes pride in working with you to develop ADA compliance solutions that are successful and cost effective. We are adept at looking at the “big picture” without losing sight of the importance of addressing details and recognize that each business, agency and community has unique needs. Our approach is professional, solution-oriented, pragmatic, comprehensive, and always confidential.
