Scope of Work
Disability Rights Texas is the federally designated legal protection and advocacy agency for people with disabilities in Texas. Our mission is to help people with disabilities understand and exercise their rights under the law, ensuring their full and equal participation in society.
Advocating on Your Behalf
Disability Rights Texas protects and advances the legal, human and service rights of Texans with a broad range of disabilities, including:
- Developmental disabilities
- Physical disabilities
- Mental illnesses
- Emotional impairments
- Learning disabilities
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Intellectual disabilities
- Sensory disabilities, such as blindness or deafness
- Adult onset disabilities and chronic health conditions
Due to limited staff and financial resources, the scope of our work is limited to specific service priorities. A comprehensive priority setting process helps us determine which issues and groups have the greatest need — so that our limited resources can be put to the best use.
