There are so many programs and services available for people with disabilities that it can make your head spin. Fortunately, the federal government has created a Web site that collects information about a wide variety of state and federal resources in one place.
The U.S. Department of Labor’s Disability.gov site is a one-stop source of government information relevant to people with disabilities, their families, employers, and service providers. Visitors choose from a number of broad categories — including housing, health, transportation, and employment — and receive a list of links to state and federal resources.
In addition to assembling all of the links in one place, Disability.gov also allows users to sort the tremendous amount of data in a variety of helpful ways. For instance, visitors can narrow their searches by target audience or by curated sub-topics. The Web site also recommends sites or organizations that do a particularly good job. On top of all of these resources, Disability.gov contains an up-to-date news feed describing various events and stories of interest to people with disabilities and their families.
