Our fact sheets, guides, and videos provide information about the rights of people with disabilities under federal and state law. They also offer tips on how to navigate various public systems, how to request accommodations or modifications, and what to do if your rights are violated or you experience discrimination. We also have resources provided by the federal government, state government, and other organizations.

Use the filters or search box in the left-hand column to find the resources you need. Please note that many of our resources apply to a wide range of disabilities, so we do not categorized our resources by individual disability.
