The document presents an annotated bibliography of literature, training materials, and other resources relevant to citizen advocacy for developmentally disabled persons, with special emphasis on materials produced in the last 5 years.

Resources listed focus primarily on consumer advocacy, citizen advocacy, or lay advocacy.

A brief description of the materials is provided. Intended users are indicated. Major subject areas include developmental disabilities (with subheadings "general,""attitudes," and "parenting"); advocacy (with subheadings "principles" and "training"); administration (with subheadings "leadership,""volunteers,""fundraising," and "public relations"); rights and benefits (with subheadings "legal rights,""education,""employment," and "supplemental security income"); access and travel; community living; periodicals; bibliographies; resource organizations; and state agencies.
