The Alabama Disabilities Advocacy Program (ADAP) is part of the
nation’s federally-funded protection and advocacy (P&A) system.
ADAP provides legal services to Alabamians with disabilities to
protect, promote and expand their rights.
ADAP is part of the National Disability Rights Network (NDRN).
ADAP’s mission is to provide quality, legally-based advocacy services
to Alabamians with disabilities in order to protect, promote and
expand their rights.
ADAP’s vision is one of a society where persons with disabilities are
valued, exercise self-determination through meaningful choices, and
have equality of opportunity.
ADAP's advocacy efforts are governed by these values:
Persons with disabilities should have the same opportunity to participate in the community as persons without disabilities.
Persons with disabilities have the right to reasonable accommodations that are needed for full participation.
Persons with disabilities have the right to be afforded meaningful choices and to make informed decisions.
