State Protection and Advocacy Agencies for persons with developmental disabilities, mental illness and the client assistance program (P&AS).

State Protection and Advocacy Agencies (P&As) for persons with developmental disabilities and mental illness, and the client assistance program NAPAS (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), and Protection and Advocacy for Individual Rights (PAIR). These two programs join four other programs-Protection and Advocacy for Individuals with Mental Illness (PAIMI), Protection and Advocacy for Assistive Technology (PAAT), Protection and Advocacy for Beneficiaries of Social Security (PABSS), 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 under IDEA. The P&A system provides a unique and effective resource for disability rights' advocacy and education. People with disabilities, their family members, and representatives are encouraged to make use of these services. Consistent with available resources and priorities established by the community, P&As will make every effort to provide appropriate assistance to remedy the situation. For additional information about the P&A system, including the location of all P&As nationwide, contact the National Association of Protection and Advocacy Systems (NAPAS), telephone (202) 408-9514 (voice) or (202) 408-9521 (TDD);or visit their web site: http://www.protectionandadvocacy. com. For information about an individual case or local resources, see the following directory of state listings.
