Welcome to the Disability Law Center of Alaska
More about our Mission
The mission of the Disability Law Center of Alaska is to provide protection and advocacy services to Alaskans with disabilities, through legal representation, education and strategic advocacy.
Although DLC is designated under federal law as the State of Alaska’s Protection & Advocacy (P&A) agency, we are not affiliated with the Social Security Administration or any other Federal or State Government agency. (more...)
Help Steer Our Work!
The Disability Law Center of Alaska (DLC) wants to hear from you. Since we don’t have the resources to provide assistance to everyone who requests help, we must decide which problems are the most important to Alaskans with disabilities. Please take a moment to share your thoughts by clicking here to take this online survey.

Are seclusion and restraint used in your school?
October 4, 2013
The Disability Law Center has received multiple complaints and has conducted several investigations into the use of seclusion and restraint in schools in communities around the state. We are trying to determine if schools in other communities also use these practices.
We welcome your stories. All contacts are confidential and can be made anonymously. To contact us or learn more, please visit our page on seclusion and restraint.
