Disability Sources

This page deals with disabilities other than blindness. It is my hope that you can gain the necessary knowledge to assist a friend or loved one and/or yourself. I know this list may not even scratch the surface regarding information and resources. However, it is my hope that you can begin your journey with such sites as ILRU, The ARC, and much more.
