DRO releases "RISE UP," a resource guide for young adults with disabilities
May 18, 2022
We are excited to share our newest resource, "RISE UP," A Practical Guide for Youth Advocates with Disabilities.
Resources for young people with disabilities transitioning to adulthood are often confusing or simply non-existent. This new resource aims to provide more practical advice to young people.
In "RISE UP," young advocates will find helpful information about situations many may go through as they become an adult.
You can find interactive versions of "RISE UP" in both English and Spanish here:
