Well, here you are Navigating Disability Road. You may be a person who has a disability, you may know someone who does, or, you’re just seeking some information. Perhaps you have to provide care to someone with a disability.
Whatever your situation might be, this website has been designed to help people maneuver through the curves, blind spots and road hazards of disability.
Because there are so many conditions and circumstances that pertain to each person and each disability, I am only providing some very general

Together, we can Navigate Disability Road and avoid some of the road hazards.
Let's have a safe and productive trip!
