Self-Advocacy Guides

Arizona Center for Disability Law offers several self-advocacy guides covering different disability-related legal issues free of charge. The guides cover such issues as assistive technology, employment, fair housing, health care, special education, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and more. These guides are not a substitute for legal advice, but may provide you with valuable information to assist you in advocating for yourself. Many of the guides are currently available on-line in PDF format. If there are guides you are interested in receiving that are not on-line, they can e-mail them to you. Please request the guide by its corresponding number (as shown on their website) and specify which format works best for you (Wordperfect, Word, HTML).
