In order to achieve this mission the CCDA is authorized by California Government Code Sections 14985-14985.11 to act as an information resource; to research and prepare advisory reports of findings to the Legislature on issues related to disability access, compliance inspections and continuing education; to increase coordination between stakeholders; to make recommendations to promote compliance with federal, and state laws and regulations; and to provide uniform information about programmatic and architectural disability access requirements to the stakeholders.

CCDA ADA Myths and Misconceptions (More Info)
The “Myths and Misconceptions” information compiled by the California Commission on Disability Access (CCDA) for businesses and building access requirements is part of a developing resource guide. It is the hope of our commission that over time this information will help to better inform the community about areas where disability access is lacking so that it can be addressed through the collaborative efforts of the government and business and disability communities to reduce such barriers in California.
CCDA is in the beginning stages of developing Consumer Access Tool Kits. We envision unique industry-focused toolkits will be developed to cover all industries standards. CCDA has gathered access professionals and representatives from various organizations to ensure the highest quality of expertise to meet this charge.
