1. How You Can Help the Office for Civil Rights Strengthen and Protect the Rights of Children with Disabilities

The Office for Civil Rights (OCR) is planning to review and revise the Section 504 regulations. Read News Release

As OCR begins the process of amending the Section 504 regulations, they are asking the public - YOU - for your experiences and suggestions to help them answer this question:

"How can OCR strengthen and protect the rights of children with disabilities?"


group of five middle school age children

The Section 504 regulations have not been revised since they were issued in 1977 - before many of you were born. The current regulations do not directly address many of the disability discrimination issues we face today.

In How You Can Help the Office for Civil Rights Strengthen and Protect the Rights of Children with Disabilities, you learn . . .

  • OCR's areas of interest;

  • Why YOU are the perfect person to contribute your experiences and suggestions;

  • How to submit your comments to OCR; and

  • Wrightslaw Tips for writing great comments.
