Are you referring to the Americans with Disabilities Act?

FYI
- One must meet the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements of a "qualified individual with a disability, who can, without reasonable accommodations perform the "essential functions" of a job".

There are three different groups of individuals who are protected under the Act: (1) a "qualified individual" with a physical or mental impairment that "substantially limits a major life activity"; (2) a person who has a "record of" disability; or (3) a person who is "regarded as" having a disability.

MHK, How did you find 10 year olds taking scuba lessons fitting in this group?
