Red Cardinal - Ohio State BirdOhio Yellow Pages for Kids with Disabilities

We built the Yellow Pages for Kids with Disabilities so people can get reliable information and support. Your state Yellow Pages includes many resources - government programs, grassroots organizations, and parent support groups.

We are adding evaluators, educational consultants, academic tutors, advocates, attorneys, and others who help parents get services for their children.The Yellow Pages are a free service. If you are interested in being added to the yellow pages please send us an email.

Yellow Pages Flyer

To get the word out about the Yellow Pages, we designed flyers for each state. Please distribute your state Yellow Pages Flyer at schools, day care centers, libraries, doctor's and psychologist's offices, community centers, and hospitals. Get your State Yellow Pages Flyer now!
