New Resources for Parents Now Available

The U.S. Department of Labor this week launched Disability.gov, a redesigned federal Web site that logoconnects the more than 50 million Americans with disabilities to thousands of trusted resources on disability-related issues, programs and services. Formerly known as DisabilityInfo.gov, the site has been completely redesigned and updated with new social media tools, such as a blog and a Twitter feed, to encourage feedback and interaction among visitors. Disability.gov is not just for Americans with disabilities, but also for parents of children with disabilities, employers, workforce and human resource professionals, veterans, educators, caregivers and many others.

Disability.gov features comprehensive information from 22 federal agencies, as well as educational institutions, non-profit organizations and state and local governments. Topics covered on the site include: benefits; civil rights; community life; education; emergency preparedness; employment; health; housing; technology; and transportation.

"I like working with the teams at Children's Care to help our people achieve outcomes. Every day is different; you are faced with challenges and rewards, and have to constantly be thinking outside the box. It is all worth it when you see a person accomplish their goals!"
