Independent living centers, which provide consumer-directed services to persons with a wide variety of disabilities, offer the training, resources, and personnel with disabilities to provide cost-effective ADA consultation services to private rehabilitationists. ADA services most frequently offered by centers include on-site accessibility surveys, training workshops, general information and referral, and employment-related information. Teamwork involving private-sector rehabilitation professionals, ADA-trained independent living specialists, persons with disabilities, and employers will facilitate compliance with the ADA during the process of returning a client to work.
