Among the top ten posts this month, “Disability in the Latino Community” discusses the views within the Latinx/Hispanic community on disability, how these views differ regionally and generationally, what happens to Latinx/Hispanics with disabilities in the US, and how to help the Latinx/Hispanic disability community within the US. Although the views of the Latinx/Hispanic community on disability have not changed much in the last six years, the amount of resources and information available for this community has increased exponentially, including from the NIDILRR community. Below, you will find new resources for the Latinx/Hispanic disability community:
