The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was passed by Congress and signed into law by President George Bush, Sr. The ADA is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in all areas of public life, including jobs, schools, transportation, and all public and private places that are open to the general public. The purpose of the law is to make sure that people with disabilities have the same rights and opportunities as everyone else. This includes Tourette Syndrome, which is a neurodevelopmental disorder that becomes evident in early childhood or adolescence characterized by uncontrollable motor and vocal tics.
