Rights and Responsibilities

Adapted from <http://sites.uws.edu.au/rdlo/disclosure/education/prior.htm>.

We’ve talked a great deal about the rights afforded to you as a person with a disability. Something very important to remember is that, as a person with a disability, you also have significant responsibilities to yourself and to others in your community.

You have the right to

• Be treated fairly and in a non-discriminatory fashion.

• Have information about your disability treated confidentially and respectfully.

• Work collaboratively with others to identify necessary supports for your success.

• Obtain information about disability support services as well as physical and programmatic access in community settings.

• Be self-determined and proactive.

You have the responsibility to

• Investigate and fully understand your disability and disability-related needs as they pertain to community living and social activities.

• Find out about options for accessing the community settings of your choice.

• Advise community members and friends in a timely manner of your accommodation and support needs.

• Understand that community members and friends may not be able to address your needs effectively if you do not present them in a timely manner.

• Be self-determined and proactive.
