In re K.C. 2015 UT 92 (Nov. 24, 2015)

 The provision of reunification services by the Department of Child and Family Services is subject to the Americans with Disabilities Act, and an alleged violation of the ADA in connection with reunification services may be raised as a defense or other means of altering a service plan in a parental rights termination proceeding. The court nevertheless affirmed, agreeing with the juvenile court’s determination that there were no additional services DCFS could have provided to accommodate the mother’s disabilities.
