Bramson ORT College is dedicated to providing supportive services for students with disabilities through ensuring accessibility to all academic and social activities. Most facilities at both locations are wheelchair-accessible, including our restrooms, classrooms, and elevator.

Services provided to students with disabilities include:

    The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)

    The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 is civil rights legislation that affects some 43,000,000 Americans with disabilities. The purpose of this act is to provide a clear and comprehensive national mandate for the elimination of discrimination against individuals with disabilities. The act complements but does not replace Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. (See Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, As Amended.) As with Section 504, the ADA is a nondiscrimination statute, not an affirmative action statute. It seeks to dispel stereotypes and assumptions about disabilities; ensure equal opportunity; and encourage full participation, independent living, and economic self-sufficiency for persons with disabilities.
