Out and About: Laws That Protect People with Disabilities

These fact sheets provide information about U.S. laws that protect the rights of people with disabilities. RTC researchers and staff created them as resources for participants in our "Out and About" intervention, which is part of the Research and Training Center on Promoting Interventions for Community Living (RTC/PICL). One additional fact sheet focuses on finding social support for community participation.
