Entrance
There are many ways to greet individuals with disabilities and make them feel welcome to your court. The public may begin their court experience at the front door, on the phone, or through a web page. This section has links to resources including signs and other tools for the “entrance” to your court, accessibility tools for your web page, and other resources.

Clerk's Office
If you work in the clerk’s office with members of the public who have disabilities, you receive ADA inquiries every day. This section contains information and resources to help you help the public.

In the Courtroom
Common courtroom needs for ADA accommodations include juror requests, and the need for assistive technology for court users with disabilities. Find these and other resources for the courtroom here.
