How we listen

  • What significant change resulted from feedback?

    Over the last few years, DRC-NH received input from a variety of stakeholders including individuals and organizations about the need for additional advocacy for students with disabilities. As the COVID-19 public health crisis caused schools to shift to remote learning, this demand increased and we began receiving more and more calls for help. DRC-NH created the special education and COVID-19 project to address these issues. With the support of funders in New Hampshire and across New England, the new project, which began on October 13, 2020 and will continue through December 2022, will solely focus on protecting the educational rights of children with disabilities through individual representation, systemic advocacy, and public policy work.
