MHA Disability Awareness Resource Links

Compiled originally as a list of service learning resources by Lovetie Browne and Robin Nemser May, 2003 as a graduate class assignment to assist professionals and volunteers in the design and implementation of service-learning projects, which will advance the cause of children and young adults with disabilities through some resources they found useful on the Internet; this page was revised and broadened May 2013 by MHA to include other general disability resources available to help advance the care and well being and support of persons with disability in the larger society. Many thanks to contributors of the general disability resource links they found interesting to share.
