Review for Coalition of Texans With Disabilities Inc, Austin, TX, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

It is not shocking that this organization cannot get it's bills successfully passes.

Grandstanding and personal attacks amongst staff complicate and/or prevent effective policy formulation.

ADAPT is a much more effective organization which 'coalitions' with the community and bypasses theatrics in favor of producing results. It does not make excuses.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Work

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Fire ED and obtain new one ASAP.

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & Public Policy.
 

Review for Coalition of Texans With Disabilities Inc, Austin, TX, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

The staff of this organization has problems. They lack basic comprehension of ADA's legal applicability to post-secondary education. But they feel compelled to insult people who do present the appropriate information. It's obvious why the group cannot get it's bills passed with the Texas Legislature. People needing to work with a disability advocacy group should hitch their star elsewhere,

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Interaction between staff and the public. Lack of our bills being passed by the Legislature

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Required teamwork. Required staff (including senior) have knowllege of disability policy and law.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The closeness to the Texas Capitol building. It's right within walking distance!

Ways to make it better...

We worked together as a team.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Lack of disability policy and law knowllege.
