ADA Educational Materials Sent to Missouri Courts
An annotated bibliography prepared by Spectrum Institute for the Alternatives to Guardianship Project was sent on December 1, 2022 to ADA Coordinators at the Supreme Court, State Courts Administrator, and circuit courts throughout the State of Missouri. A copy was also sent to The Missouri Bar.
The document is titled “How the ADA Applies to Guardianship Proceedings: A Primer for Missouri’s Judges, Attorneys, and Guardians.”
The letter transmitting the document invites bench officers, administrators, and court staff to review current policies and practices in adult guardianship proceedings through the lens of what the Americans with Disabilities Act actually requires. Another document containing findings of ADA noncompliance by the guardianship system and recommendations to bring it into conformity with federal law will be released and sent to Missouri officials in all three branches of government next year.
