Mobility Devices

Per ADA law regarding mobility devices, people with disabilities are permitted to use manual or power wheelchairs or scooters, and manually-powered mobility aids such as walkers, crutches, and canes, into all areas where members of the public are allowed to go. In addition, entities must also allow people with disabilities who use other types of power-driven mobility devices into their facilities, unless a particular type of device cannot be accommodated because of legitimate safety requirements. Where legitimate safety requirements bar accommodation for a particular type of device, the covered entity must provide the service it offers in alternate ways if possible. Please note that in some cases, the DSS office may ask for documentation of a disability to determine if a mobility device is needed due to a disability. For more information about the ADA and mobility devices, please read Wheelchairs, Mobility Aids, and Other Power-Driven Mobility Devices
If you have any questions, please contact the DSS office directly at 254-526-1195.
