Who is a Qualified Individual?
A qualified individual is someone who has a physical or mental impairment that
substantially limits one or more major life activities; someone who has a record
of such impairment; or someone who is regarded as having such impairment.
What Accommodations are Available?
In compliance with the ADA, the Judicial Branch will make reasonable
accommodations for people with disabilities when requested to do so. These
accommodations may include providing equipment and services such as assistive
listening devices, sign language interpreters, printed material in alternate
formats, and more. The ADA does not require the Judicial Branch to provide
services or devices of a personal nature, such as wheelchairs or other mobility
devices, legal representation, or transportation; nor to take any action that
would fundamentally alter the nature of its programs or service or impose an
undue financial or administrative burden.
