New Concept? Accomodating the Cognitively Disabled
in Court or any Legal Proceedings
Interview with Rita Phelps
Director of the Vermont Communication Support Project
recorded on August 18, 2011
Court time can be intimidating time for many. What if you had to go to
Family Court, Superior Court, Small Claims Court or Probate Court and
you were cognitively challenged? And you need access to make your own
decisions without having a guardian of the court do that for you?
Who you going to call?
The Vermont Communication Support Project says Vermont is leading the
nation on this accommodation. Listen in as Anne speaks with Rita Phelps,
the Director of the project, who tells us how it works and some
perspectives on the Americans With Disabilities Act.
