Reasonable Accommodation Resources

Reasonable accommodations enable qualified individuals with disabilities to fully participate all service programs and activities.

Once a person requests an accommodation, it is important to discuss with that individual what functional limitations or barriers exist that are preventing that person from fully participating in your program. Often, people with disabilities know what they need and how to secure it. If the person is not sure what they need or where to secure accommodations, the Governor's Office of Community Service is here to help.
