Through training and technical assistance, legal support, and legislative advocacy, NDRN
works to create a society in which people with disabilities are afforded equality of opportunity and are able to fully participate by exercising choice and self-determination.
Because this month is EP's education-themed issue, we would like to focus on some of the work NDRN and the P&A systems have done in the area of education.
As the nonprofit membership organization for the P&A system, NDRN does not provide direct legal services, but provides training and technical assistance and legal support to the P&A network.
In the educational arena, NDRN has written amicus briefs for itself or has joined with other national organizations on virtually every Supreme Court case on special education.
We at EP cannot recommend strongly enough that all parents and individuals visit the NDRN Web site to locate their own state or territorial P&A system.
While visiting the NDRN Web site, we also recommend you visit their "Issue Area" at http://www.
