Important tips to remember when interacting with someone with a mobility disability:
- Avoid touching or leaning on a person’s wheelchair, scooter or walking aid without his or her permission.
- Be aware of reach limits, particularly when you are handing items to such persons.
- Provide a chair for someone who may have difficulty standing for a long period of time.
- Be aware that people who are not visibly mobility-impaired may have medical needs that impact the ability to move around the courthouse.
