ADA regulations specifically affect two areas of lighting, wall and ceiling hung fixtures.  Lights that are hung on the wall can not protrude further than 4 inches from the wall and must be mounted between 2’4” to 6’8” above the finished floor.  Ceiling hung fixtures must hang 6’8” above the finished floor.
