EHS Reasonable Accommodations and Legal Matters

Americans with Disabilities Act - Recognition for EHS

August 2015  Massachsetts - Federal Wi-Fi lawsuit against Southboro's Fay School will go to court in August 2016.  The school did not accommodate a student who began to have symptoms of EHS after a stronger wireless network was installed.  Fay School ADA Complaint


September 2014 The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) Accommodated a Teacher Who Fell Ill After Wireless Installation.  Press release and video of her testimony to the school district

Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity is a recognized disability under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).  Schools, government offices and other public buildings that have wireless networks become inaccessible to children and adults who suffer from this condition.


United States Access Board - Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) Project


"The Board recognizes that multiple chemical sensitivities and electromagnetic sensitivities may be considered disabilities under the ADA if they so severely impair the neurological, respiratory or other functions of an individual that it substantially limits one or more of the individual's major life activities. The Board plans to closely examine the needs of this population, and undertake activities that address accessibility issues for these individuals."

Searching for a Golden Cage
by Time Magazine

In this excellent 12-minute documentary, photographer filmmaker Nadav Neuhaus introduces us to three  people with EHS – trying to find a safe home.


Children and adults in countries all over the world are describing a cluster of  symptoms after living in high wireless environments.  These symptoms include headache, fatigue, stress, sleep disturbances and rashes.


Many scientists think that EHS can be understood as the body's response to cumulative exposure with some people showing more symptoms than others.  Some people call this reaction “radio wave poisoning”. Our body is electrical so it makes sense that when we expose our bodies to unnatural levels of electricity, the cells will react .
