Abstract: This thesis contains a policy analysis of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990. The ADA is a law which attempts to mandate equal opportunity and access for people with disabilities. The bill contains five titles covering all aspects of integration of people with disabilities into the public mainstream. I chose to analyze the employment and transportation titles of the bill. I feel these two titles form the foundation of the ADA. While individually these titles might not result in extensive change for people with disabilities, if the two are implemented simultaneously a powerful mandate for integration and change is created. In the paper I chose to analyze the ADA by discussing the nature of the problem, prognosis if nothing is done, objectives and goals, possible alternative strategies, benefits, costs, risks, unintended consequences, political feasibility, problems of implementation, and methods of enforcement and evaluation. Through this discussion I evaluate the ADA to be a demanding and innovative bill which will require substantial commitments of time and money. The overall analysis is drawn from the interpretation and estimation of the effects ADA will have and has already had on both people with disabilities and the American population as a whole. Using evidence from the past and present effects and predictions of future results, I discuss the prospects for success and possible overall impact of the Americans with Disabilities as it becomes a part of the public sector of the United States.
