New Fact Sheets Explain Laws That Protect People with Disabilities

Staff at the Research and Training Center on Promoting Interventions for Community Living (RTC/PICL) has created six new fact sheets to inform people with disabilities about their rights under U.S. laws. They are a few of the resources offered to participants in the RTC/PICL’s “Out and About” intervention, which assists consumers in setting community participation goals and addressing barriers to participation. Each fact sheet includes one or two scenarios that illustrate how understanding disability legislation enables people with disabilities to advocate for change. An additional fact sheet offers information on how to build a support network.
