The Arc of Northern Virginia is excited to be partnering with the Mid-Atlantic ADA Leadership Network to offer a free training series on the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). While there is general awareness of the act, many people are unfamiliar with what it actually covers. And an even greater number don’t realize what the ADA does for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. These workshops will help bring all of this valuable information to light.
