Disability Resources

Nearly 1 in 5 people - 56.7 million - in the US has a disability (1).  1 out of every five people I know!?!  People with disabilities are more likely than those without disabilities to report having poorer overall health, less access to adequate healthcare and more engagement in risky behaviors such as smoking and physical inactivity (2).  

Below are links to a toolkit to help empower our disabled population with their options and their rights!  Share some findings, in hopes that the resources that are compied can help empower people to feel less “stuck” in their respective situations.
