State Protection and Advocacy Agencies (P&As) for persons with developmental disabilities developmental disabilities (DD), the pathologic conditions that have their origin in the embryology and growth and development of an individual. DDs usually appear clinically before 18 years of age.
 and mental illness, and the client assistance program NAPAS NAPAS National Association of Protection and Advocacy Systems  (National Association of Protection and Advocacy Systems). State Protection and Advocacy offices are federally mandated to provide legally-based advocacy services to people with disabilities in each state and territory. P&As primarily advocate on behalf of special education students through funds from two federal programs: Protection and Advocacy for People with Developmental Disabilities (PADD PADD Personal Access Display Device (Star Trek)
PADD Person Authorized to Direct Disposition (of human remains)
PADD Parallel and Distributed Databases
PADD Protection and Advocacy for Developmental Disabilities
), and Protection and Advocacy for Individual Rights (PAIR). These two programs join four other programs-Protection and Advocacy for Individuals with Mental Illness (PAIMI PAIMI Protection and Advocacy for Individuals with Mental Illness ), Protection and Advocacy for Assistive Technology Hardware and software that help people who are physically impaired. Often called "accessibility options" when referring to enhancements for using the computer, the entire field of assistive technology is quite vast and even includes ramp and doorway construction in buildings to support  (PAAT PAAT Programme Against African Trypanosomiasis
PAAT Protection and Advocacy for Assistive Technology
PAAT Personnel Administrative Assistance Team
), Protection and Advocacy for Beneficiaries of Social Security (PABSS PABSS Protection and Advocacy for Beneficiaries of Social Security
PABSS parallel agent based social simulation
), and the Client Assistance Program (CAP)-to complete the entire P&A system. P&As all over the country work on a variety of cases with common themes for people with disabilities, one of which is ensuring that children in special education are receiving the services to which they are entitled en·ti·tle
