Medline Plus: Disabilities

Sometimes the hardest thing about doing a disability awareness activity is finding clear, concise, authoritative information about disabilities to share with your participants. Medline Plus: Disabilities is an excellent place to start. This website is administered by the National Library of Medicine, so you are sure find information you can trust! You will find information about:
  • Living with disabilities
  • related topics like learning disabilities, mobility aids, etc.
  • Links to resources in Spanish
  • Kids resources and more

Medline Plus is also a great place to find information about specific disabilities. Often you will find interactive tools to share, links to recent news stories and journal articles as well as links to clinical trials currently being run in an area. Looking for local resources? No problem! Check out GoLocal for a directory of local services.
