There are many individuals who are not aware of the rights that all humans have. The focus of this paper is to educate these individuals on individuals with disabilities rights and how they can still be supported without their rights being violated. Individuals with disabilities do not always know and understand what their rights are. This paper will encourage others to advocate on their behalf and kill the myth that individuals with disabilities do not have the same rights as individuals without disabilities.
