DC Policy for Provision of Auxiliary Aids

Tuesday, September 2, 2008

District government agencies will provide auxiliary aids and services when necessary to ensure that communication with individuals with vision, hearing, and speech disabilities is as effective as communication with nondisabled individuals. No surcharge or fee will be assessed for the provision of auxiliary aids and services. In determining which auxiliary aid to provide, District agencies will give primary consideration to the reg uest of the individual with a disability.
