Unfortunately, the answer is yes and no. I just checked the train schedule for tomorrow morning, as an example, and some of the trains have the handicap symbol, some don't. I thought perhaps it was related to the class of train, but that's not the case. Some of the regional trains are accessible, some not.
The commuter type trains are handicapped accessible. The older style regional trains are not.
Probably best to deal with somebody at Termini ticket office to determine which trains terminate in Civitavecchia on binario (track) 1 since there are still no lifts in Civitavecchia in the underground passages. If the train terminates on binario 5, you can arrange for the station master to have somebody wheel the individual across the tracks.

Go to this link for more info: SALA BLU. It is the link for the Trenitalia "Blue Hall," which is assistance for handicapped travelers. They say they provide assistance at 251 stations... and Civitavecchia, acording to the website, IS one of those 251 (for a complete list, CLICK HERE).
