Today, children with ADHD are eligible for special education services or accommodations within the regular classroom when needed, and adults with ADHD may be eligible for accommodations in the workplace under the Americans with Disabilities Act. CHADD is a success story, inspired by the desire of countless parents to see their children with ADHD succeed. From one parent support group in Florida, the organization grew dramatically to become the leading non-profit national organization for children and adults with ADHD.

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) makes it possible for people with disabilities to have better access to the community. PSTA Access eligibility process will encourage people to use regular PSTA fixed-route service whenever possible. In this way, PSTA is ensuring that PSTA Access will only be used by those who truly need the service. The eligibility process determines if a person has the ability to use the regular bus. It does not make decisions based on the type of disability you have or a specific diagnosis by a physician. Rather, it determines if you are able to do such things as travel to a bus stop, board a bus, and navigate the fixed route system. Eligibility for PSTA Access service is based on how a person's disability under ADA affects daily life activities which would prevent the use of accessible fixed-route service.
