Overview

If you are an individual with a disability and believe you have suffered discrimination, it is often hard to find a lawyer to help remedy your situation. Accordingly, "self-help" may often be your most, or your only, viable strategy. But how to proceed? This book serves as a badly needed practical guide to disability discrimination law. Covering a wide range of issues facing individuals with different kinds of disabilities, it not only describes those individuals' legal rights but also suggests solutions to disability issues that are more practical and less expensive than filing a lawsuit. Written by two disability law experts, Ruth Colker, whose son has participated in special education programs, and the late Adam A. Milani, who was paralyzed from the chest down, this book draws on their scholarly expertise and collective practical experience from years of navigating disability issues.

Everyday Law for Individuals with Disabilities is the first in a series of practical guides to the law, organized by series editors Richard Delgado and Jean Stefancic, packed with useful overviews and advice for the people who need it most and can least afford it.
