The Alabama Developmental Disabilities Network is comprised of the Alabama Council for Developmental Disabilities (ACDD), the Alabama Disabilities Advocacy Program (ADAP), and the University Centers for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (UCEDD). We work together to provide grants, services, referrals, education, research and advocacy protection for Alabamians with developmental disabilities.
Alabama Disabilities Advocacy Program (ADAP)
The 57 State Protection and Advocacy Systems (P&As) across the United States and its territories are dedicated to the ongoing fight for the personal and civil rights of individuals with developmental disabilities. P&As work at the state level to protect individuals with developmental disabilities by empowering them and advocating on their behalf. P&As provide legal support to help navigate the legal system to achieve resolution and encourage systems change.
