Information is Power!

On this page, you'll find some of the different resource materials we've created to help inform and empower people who have a developmental disability to speak-up for themselves and others. We believe that information is power and we're happy to share our power, however we ask that you please credit Advocates in Action RI when using our materials. We'd also love to hear from you about the different ways you're able to use them, as well as suggestion, or corrections you may have.

This is also just a small sample of the resource materials we've created over the years. Contact us if you're looking for resources on a specific topic.
