[1] Dalam pemahaman DRF tentang istilah “DPO,” DPO adalah organisasi-organisasi atau kelompok-kelompok yang mewakili para penyandang disabilitas, dimana para penyandang disabilitas merupakan mayoritas dari keseluruhan staf, dewan pimpinan, dan relawannya, serta juga terwakili dengan baik di seluruh tingkatan organisasi tersebut.  Termasuk juga dalam hal ini adalah organisasi-organisasi keluarga penyandang disabilitas (hanya jika organisasi mewakili anak-anak penyandang disabilitas, penyandang disabilitas intelektual atau buta-tuli) dimana tujuan utama dari organisasi ini adalah pemberdayaan dan pengembangan advokasi diri para penyandang disabilitas. Selain itu, pemahaman DPO tentang disabilitas sejalan dengan model sosial.

[1] In DRF’s understanding of the term, “DPO,” DPOs are representative organizations or groups of PWDs, where PWDs constitute a majority of the overall staff, board and volunteers, and are well represented in all levels of the organization.  It includes organizations of relatives of PWDs (only those representing children with disabilities, people with intellectual disabilities, or the Deafblind) where a primary aim of these organizations is empowerment and the growth of self-advocacy of persons with disabilities. In addition, DPOs have an understanding of disability in accordance with the social model.
