You've Got Rights!
A Guidebook for Teens and Young Adults
This guidebook was developed by the Cape Organization for Rights of the Disabled (CORD) with a grant from the Town of Barnstable and the CORD Peer Assistive Technology Project, which is affiliated with the Massachusetts Assistive Technology Partnership and funded by a grant from the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR), U.S. Department of Education and administered by the Massachusetts Commission for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing.
CORD would like to thank the Massachusetts Office on Disability for use of the booklet "Disability Laws in Massachusetts" to create this guide and the Disability Law Center and the Mass. Advocacy Center for their help.
