Information about Disability

There are a variety of resources and tools that can help Myositis patients who are no longer able to work, able to work but require accommodations, need to file for Social Security Disability, and many others. Also, knowing your rights as person with a disability is important and we have providing some information about the The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

The Americans with Disabilities Act

The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) prohibits discrimination and ensures equal opportunity for persons with disabilities in employment, State and local government services, public accommodations, commercial facilities, and transportation. It also mandates the establishment of TDD/telephone relay services.  View the ADA and amendments.
