North Dakota Protection & Advocacy Project
Disability is not a condition that affects the "special" or "unfortunate few". Disability is a common characteristic and occurrence within the human experience. In fact, more than one in every seven North Dakotans over the age of five has a disability (U.S. Census Bureau; 2006 Data Profiles).
Disability is not limited to people who use wheelchairs or those with a visual or hearing loss. Some disabilities are quite visible, while others are hidden, such as emotional and psychiatric conditions or cognitive disabilities.
The Protection & Advocacy Project (P&A) advocates for the legal rights of North Dakotans with disabilities. Please take some time to explore this website and to find more about P&A and the rights of people with disabilities.
