Should we build new institutions?

Research indicates that people with disabilities have better outcomes when they have supports to live in the community rather than living in institutions, however, initiatives to create new institutional lving settings are being proposed in many U.S. communities. This video considers whether that is a good idea. It is adapted from the white paper "Community Living and Participation for People with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities: What the Research Tells Us," from the American Association on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (AAIDD) and the Association of University Centers on Disabilities (AUCD).

Questions of Discrimination

Before someone can practice law, they must not only graduate from law school but pass the state’s bar exam. Currently, 41 states include questions in their bar exam application asking about the applicant’s mental health history, diagnosis or treatment. If an applicant answers “yes” to these questions, they are required to fill out a form revealing private information and may be forced to turn over confidential treatment records before being allowed to take the bar exam. The video below discusses the impact these questions have on applicants and the diversity of the legal profession.
