Dr. Rick Rader, Director of the Habilitation Center at the Orange Grove Center in Chattanooga Tennessee, was until recently a member of the National Council on Disability — an independent federal agency that advises the President, Congress and other federal institutions on disability policies, programs and practices. The National Council on Disability is known for recommending and drafting the first version of the bill that would ultimately become the landmark Americans with Disabilities Act, which became law in 1990.
