What are my rights?

People with physical, intellectual, and developmental disabilities have full legal rights. Some rights can only be limited if people go to court and prove why someone shouldn’t have all of their rights.

Everyone has the right to be sexual, even if you have a guardian.

Even if someone is not able to count money, drive a car, or read a book, they still have a right to make choices about their life and have people respect their choices. Everyone deserves respect and the power to make choices and take chances. This is also called ‘The Dignity of Risk.’
