The Office of Administrative Hearings is committed to ensuring that hearing participants who have disabilities are provided access to our hearings and our facilities. We are also committed to fully complying with the applicable provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Title II of the ADA requires all public entities to take reasonable steps to allow qualified people with disabilities to access all services, programs and activities offered by the public entity. You can find more information about your rights under the ADA at the following link:

Once we receive your request, we will review it and contact you if we need more information. Some accommodations may take additional time to arrange, so please provide us with as much advance notice as possible. We may also contact you to discuss possible alternative accommodations that will allow you to fully participate in the hearing process.
We will treat your request seriously and make every effort to provide an accommodation where it is needed and necessary. However, a request may be denied if:
- The applicant is not a qualified individual with a disability under the ADA.
- The requested ADA accommodations would create an undue financial or administrative burden on the OAH (as defined by the ADA)
- The request fundamentally alters the nature of the services provided by the OAH (as defined by the ADA).
- If we do not have sufficient information needed to grant the request. If that is the case, our staff will contact you to discuss what more is needed.
