Handicapped Services is here to provide special assistance for the physical needs of Noreascon 4 members. If you or members of your family need mobility or other aids, please contact Handicapped Services handicapped@noreascon.org, and we will work to get you answers to your concerns.

Mobility aids

Handicapped Services is pleased to announce that we will have scooters and wheelchairs available to be rented for the duration of Noreascon 4. We will have both standard (up to 300 lbs.) and heavy-duty (up to 450 lbs.) models available for both scooters and wheelchairs. The scooters will rent for $240 and the wheelchairs for $105; both prices include the cost of insurance.

Scooter Online Reservation Form

Wheelchair Online Reservation Form

If you can not use our online forms, we also have a html version that you can print and mail or fax to us.

Please reserve your scooter or wheelchair by May 31 so that we may ensure your rental of a machine.

Visual aids

We are planning on having the pocket program available on audiocassettes and in a large format type. If anyone needs to receive the pocket program in either of these ways, please contact handicapped services at the above e-mail address.

Signers wanted

Handicapped Services is looking for ASL interpreters. If you or someone you know would like to help us out, again, please contact me.

Service Animals

All of Noreascon Four's facilities welcome service animals.

Tell Us What Services Would be Helpful

Please tell us what kinds of handicapped services would be most useful to you. We can't guarantee that we'll be able to provide all the services that people request, but we'd like to know what services are most important to our members. Please write us at handicapped@noreascon.org with your comments, questions, and suggestions.

I am looking forward to meeting all of you and helping you to have a more comfortable and enjoyable Worldcon.
