HLAA Kentucky Kentuckiana chapter purple logo in JPG format

Tuesday, August 14, 2018, 6:30 P.M.
Community Room
9725 Dixie Highway
Louisville, Kentucky 40272

Hotels, restaurants, theaters, grocery stores, banks, museums, libraries, zoos, amusement parks, schools, senior citizen centers, homeless shelters, funeral parlors and health spas are a few examples of places of public accommodations. Learn about the Americans with Disabilities Act, Title III. Title III provides for people who are deaf or hard of hearing to have equal access to public accommodations.  We will explore how to have equal access if you are a person who is deaf or hard of hearing and when places of public accommodations need to provide auxiliary aids and services to ensure effective communication with people with hearing loss.
