"When I was in school, one of my teachers was crazy about me. I once heard her tell another teacher, 'I wish he were my kid for just one day.'"

On September 25, 2008, President Bush signed into law the ADA Amendments Act of 2008 ("Act") which became effective January 1, 2009. The Act makes important changes to the definition of the term "disability" by rejecting several United States Supreme Court decisions that it viewed as improperly narrowing ADA coverage. Specifically, the Act expands the protections of the original ADA to include more individuals with less severe impairments.
