The Protection Orders and Working with People with Disabilities tip sheet is a tool that attorneys, advocates, and others can familiarize themselves with common types of disabilities, the unique barriers people with those disabilities may experience in the protection order office, and strategies for overcoming those barriers that attorneys and advocates can implement in their work. The tip sheet is designed to assist practitioners in foreseeing, recognizing, and eliminating barriers to justice in the protection order process for people with disabilities.
