The National Womens Law Center (NWLC), National Association of Councils on Developmental Disabilities (NACDD), Association of University Centers on Disabilities (AUCD), and National Disability Rights Network (NDRN) are excited to release our joint fact sheet in honor of the 47th anniversary of Title IX.

Supporting students with disabilities means addressing sexual harassment, including sexual assault. Students with disabilities are more likely than their peers to experience sexual harassment, less likely to report it, and more likely to be pushed out of school as a result of sexual harassment. Schools must meet their obligations to address sexual harassment under both Title IX-the federal law that prohibits sex discrimination in schools-and laws that protect the civil rights of students with disabilities.
