Accessibility Guide for Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Providers
The Accessibility Guide for Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Service Providers Guide is written for sexual assault and domestic violence service providers in Wisconsin to provide a basic understanding of the laws affecting access to programs and services for people with disabilities. The laws upon which the Guide is based are more complex than the general descriptions provided in the Guide. We have tried to give the readers practical discussions and examples of specific applications of the law, but it is not possible to anticipate every situation. Although the Guide uses some legal citations, it is written for non-lawyers. It is not specific legal advice, nor is it a comprehensive review of all aspects of the civil rights laws for people with disabilities. Laws change and develop over time, so we have provided you with information about useful technical assistance and resource contacts. If you want more information, we suggest that you contact the resources we have provided, or that you consult with an attorney.
