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
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
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.
