Exercising Human Rights
By: Rich Santucci, HRAC

(Rich recently completed his term on HRAC but graciously agreed to let this article he wrote during his term be published)

Though constitutional, legal and civil rights are intended to protect all members of society, including those we support, DMR Regulations [including 115 CMR 3.09 and 5.01-5.16] provide many additional protections for individuals to reflect Federal Court decisions which have addressed historical violations of the constitutional rights of individuals with developmental and other disabilities.

One of these important additional protections we provide for the individuals we support is to assure their knowledge of their rights through individualized teaching and opportunity to exercise them. We are mandated to do.
