Depending on the nature of the concern, DRW may provide a variety of advocacy services pertaining to priority issues such as abuse and neglect, patient rights, deinstitutionalization, special education, voting rights, discrimination in employment and housing, barriers to accessibility, assistive technology, victims of crime, and access to services. Advocacy services offered include: information and referral, advice and guidance in self-advocacy, investigating, negotiating or mediating on your behalf, or representing clients in legal proceedings.
