Court Program Accessibility (ADA and Washington State Information)
The Court Access Programs Section of the Judicial Services Division of the Administrative Office of the Courts, has developed this website to help individual courts evaluate their current access and accommodation policies, processes and procedures and develop plans to improve. Washington Courts need to be fully compliant with the requirements of the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA), not only because it is the law, but because equal access to justice is a fundamental right.
This website will:
Identify and explain the goals associated with providing equal access;
Give an overview of the ADA requirements;
Provide model policies, procedures and forms; and
Provide assistive technology and training resources.
Our goal is to make the process of requesting and providing accommodations as straightforward as possible.
