Accessible Communication is Essential for People with Disabilities on Parole and Probation

The article, "For People with Disabilities on Parole and Probation, Accessible Communication is Essential", talks about how violations of disability rights laws, including the Americans with Disabilities Act, and breakdowns in communication prevent deaf, deafblind, deaf-disabled, and hard of hearing people from meeting the conditions of their release. 

Federal law requires the parole system to make required programs accessible to people with disabilities, but often this is not happening. In addition, many individuals are denied or are not being provided with the accommodations needed to allow for effective communication.
