Collaboration with National Disability Rights Network Expands P&A Case Collection

The first page of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.

Thanks to an ongoing collaboration with the National Disability Rights Network, the Clearinghouse has recently expanded our coverage of cases brought by state protection and advocacy (P&A) systems. The hundreds of cases in that collection are available here.  Recent additions to the collection include a case challenging the expulsions of IDEA-eligible students in Ohio, a case defining the contours of P&A record access in Idaho, and a case seeking to end the unnecessarily institutionalization of Medicaid-eligible young people in North Carolina. To find P&A cases in the Clearinghouse, look for the "NDRN/Protection & Advocacy Organizations" tag in the plaintiffs' attorney organization field.
