ADA Accommodations Policy   
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires associations like MTNA & WMTA to make reasonable accommodations to the known physical or mental limitations of otherwise qualified disabled individuals. MTNA & WMTA are committed to compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act in all of the association’s programs and services. MTNA & WMTA will make every attempt to accommodate disabilities on an individual basis unless the accommodation would impose significant difficulty and undue hardship on operations or the association would incur substantial expense in doing so. Anyone who requests an accommodation must provide documentation of the disability, including a statement from a medical/health care professional, prior to commencing the programs or services.

If your student requires accommodations as specified in the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) all requests should be made to the local District Chair by November 1 of the year prior to the audition year even if the student chooses not to participate later.  This will allow the local District Chair time to gather the documentation required and submit the request to the District Auditions Chair.  The District Auditions Chair, local District Chair, and student’s teacher will determine accommodations for the student prior to their audition.
