             About Disability Advocacy Alliance

Disability Advocacy Alliance (DAA) is a volunteer organization which was formed in January 2015 by parents and family members to protect the rights of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Ohio.  


DAA's mission is faithful to the U.S. Supreme Court's Olmstead decision and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).  Olmstead clearly states that an individual's choices are paramount in determining residential placement.  It is with this legal foundation that DAA asserts that the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities must offer a range of residential, habilitation, and employment options to meet the diverse needs of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
