Disability Rights Texas works with individuals with disabilities in the following ways:
The laws that give Disability Rights Texas the responsibility to protect and advocate for people with disabilities also give us tools to accomplish that task: access to facilities or programs providing services to people with disabilities and access to their confidential records. This access permits Disability Rights Texas to conduct abuse or neglect investigations, provide information and training about the rights of individuals with disabilities, and monitor a facility or program's compliance with respect to the rights and safety of people who receive their services. Courts have recognized that this broad Congressional authority allows protection and advocacy agencies to bring actions in their own name to vindicate the rights of people with disabilities.
