Treatment of persons with disabilities

presentation by


Američki centar

Erin Richardson is a mother of three children, including a nine-year old son with autism, a lawyer, and a disability advocate. Her work in the United States has focused on assisting families and children obtain appropriate educational services pursuant to federal and state laws that provide educational rights to students with disabilities. Ms. Richardson’s experience raising and advocating for her own son has inspired her to dedicate her professional life to the promotion of the rights of students with disabilities within the educational context. She is particularly interested in the subject of inclusive education, and has fought for many students (including her own son) to be educated alongside their typical peers in regular education classrooms. Ms. Richardson has resided with her family in Belgrade for one year, during which she has been involved in disability advocacy on a volunteer basis for Mental Disabilities Rights Initiative-Serbia.
