Education

Disability Rights Oregon provides information, referral, and advocacy services for Oregonians who are having a disability-related legal problem related to education, including public special education and transition services, and postsecondary education including public, private, and vocational schools. DRO works to secure integrated and appropriate public services for children and young adults in the public school system and prevent the use of restraint, seclusion and police intervention with students. See our Goals & Priorities for more details.
