Equal Rights for All

The Standard Legal Resource for Deaf and Hard of Hearing People Is Revised and Completely Updated

Just in time to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) comes the new, completely revised sixth edition of Legal Rights: The Guide for Deaf and Hard of Hearing People by the National Association of the Deaf (NAD). The first editions of Legal Rights documented the areas where deaf and hard of hearing people had successfully secured rights under the law. Since that time, the legal landscape for deaf and hard of hearing people has advanced by leaps and bounds.

This sixth edition includes new rights provided by the Twenty-First Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act of 2010, as well as the ADA Amendments Act (ADAAA) and several rulings and orders from the Federal Communications Commission. New technologies have transformed how communication access is provided, and laws and regulations have adapted to recognize new means of communication such as videophones, Internet streaming services, and numerous new forms of social media such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and many more.

Library Journal featured a ringing endorsement of the new sixth edition in a recent issue: “A law text that is comprehensive yet accessible is a rarity. Highly recommended for those with hearing impairments and their loved ones, along with students and practitioners of law, education, medicine, and politics. A necessity for all public library collections.”

For a limited time, Legal Rights and other select titles are available at 25% off on hardcover and paperbacks. Use the promo code 25ADA at checkout for your discount. The code is valid through 7/31/15.
