About Us

ADA Live! (WADA) is a monthly show broadcast nationally on the Internet and produced by the Southeast ADA Center.

Ask questions and learn about your rights and responsibilities under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Leaders in the field will share their knowledge, experience and successful strategies that increase the participation of persons with disabilities in communities and businesses.

Southeast ADA Center

The Southeast ADA Center provides information, training, and guidance on the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Our services are free and confidential, and tailored to the needs of business, government, and individuals at local, state, and regional levels. We also conduct research to reduce and eliminate barriers to employment and economic self-sufficiency and to increase the civic and social participation of Americans with disabilities.

The Southeast ADA Center is a project of the Burton Blatt Institute (BBI) of Syracuse University and one of ten regional centers in the ADA National Network funded by the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, & Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR).

Located in Atlanta, Georgia, we are the regional office for a network of State and Local Affiliates in eight (8) states in the U.S. Southeast Region: Alabama (AL), Florida (FL), Georgia (GA), Kentucky (KY), Mississippi (MS), North Carolina (NC), South Carolina (SC), and Tennessee (TN).

National Association of Digital Broadcasters (NAdb)

The National Association of Digital Broadcasters (The NAdB), founded in 2009, provides support, education and advocacy for Internet radio and streaming digital broadcasters in the United States, including assignment and administration of call letters (also known as a callsign) for digital/streaming radio stations.

Callsign for ADA Live!: WADA-DB

A callsign must be approved by the NAdb. Instead of having to dial in "TODAY'S FAVORITES" all you have to enter is the four digit callsign for the ADA Live!  show - WADA.

The first letter in the callsign identifies the location. The "W" in our callsign of WADA is used for New York, New Jersey and most other locations east of the Mississippi River in the United States. The remainly three letters in a callsign are chosen by the radio show host. Since ADA Live! covers topics on the Americans with Disabilities Act, we chose "ADA" in our callsign of WADA. In addition, to denote that the station broadcasts on the Internet (or via other wireless systems), a "-DB" follows the assigned call letters.

ADA National Network

The ADA National Network is the “go to” resource on the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and its implementation. The Network consists of ten regional centers located throughout the United States that provide information, guidance and training to businesses, employers, state and local governments and individuals. The ADA National Network is not an enforcement or regulatory agency—but rather a helpful resource. The ADA National Network is funded by a grant from the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR).
