Do a search for the "ADA" Americans with Disabilities Act. they have a site and a contact to ask questions. I use them periodically for specifications on building ramps and rails and all this.
For example the ramp must be one foot out for every 4 inches up in height to the threshold of the home.
Hope that this helps you.
If not, come back with some specific questions and we will look them up for you.
