Disability Empowerment is a
parent-led grassroots disability advocacy movement.
Disability Empowerment is a movement started to support parents as they form state-wide groups or organizations created with the purpose of getting a state law passed which would require insurance to cover therapies for individuals with any developmental disability.
Disability Empowerment groups differ from state to state. Many have chosen to incorporate "Disability Empowerment" into their name. Some are advocating for issues beyond therapy insurance legislation.
