Summary

Summarized is a discussion paper on existing elements of legal advocacy systems which could be considered as alternative models for adaptation by the respective states now seeking to plan and implement the advocacy mandate under Section 113 of Public Law 88-164 as amended in 1975 by Public Law 94-103, the Developmental Disabilities Act. Chapters cover the following topics: background on developmental disabilities legislation; existing advocacy mechanisms in Minnesota, Ohio, and New Jersey; policy considerations regarding such issues as requirements of independence, availability of legal resources, and authority to pursue remedies; and suggested criteria for advocacy systems. It is concluded that there are already a number of promising advocacy systems which now yield direct and tangible benefits to the developmentally disabled and their families. Appended is the table of contents of the full paper. (SBH)
