Overwhelmed and overloaded?
One obstacle in advocating for a child with a disability is finding the time to do research on the issues involved. You need to learn about the child's disability, proven methods of teaching and learning, rights and responsibilities, and advocacy strategies.
We have spent a many hours collecting information so you can spend your time learning, not searching.
We designed the Yellow Pages for Kids with Disabilities so you can get reliable information and support. Your state Yellow Pages has different kinds of help - grassroots organizations, parent support groups, government programs and contact info. To recommend a group or organization for the Yellow Pages, please send an email with the name of the group, purpose, and contact information.
To get your state special education regulations and other special education publications, please use the Directory of State Departments of Education.
For information and parent training in your state, use the Directory of Parent Training Information Centers.
For legal and advocacy information, check the Directory of Legal and Advocacy Resources.
For international organizations and information groups, use the Directory of International Resources.
Even if you are not new to the Internet, you may feel overwhelmed by the amount of material you find. You can easily spend hours looking for information without finding what you need.
To learn about IEPs, reading, high-stakes testing, transition plans, children's mental health, discipline, zero tolerance and more, download the publications from our Free Stuff page.
