Resources from the NIDILRR Community for Children with Disabilities, Their Families, and Service Providers

Children may be born with disabilities, such as physical and developmental disabilities. Some children may experience disabilities at or shortly after birth, such as cerebral palsy. Other children may not be diagnosed with disabilities until they are in school, such as learning or behavioral disabilities. Finally, children may experience disabilities through trauma, such as burn injuries, traumatic brain injuries (TBI), or spinal cord injuries (SCI). Children with disabilities have the right to full participation in their communities. However, they and their families may face barriers to living and participating in their communities, such as barriers to education, recreation, and accessible communities. NARIC’s information specialists are often asked for information and resources to help children with disabilities participate in their communities and that may help their families and service providers in supporting them. This month, we are highlighting evidence-based consumer products from the NIDILRR community for children with disabilities, their families, and service providers, which may include guides, calendars, factsheets, and more.

Below, you will find just a few examples of evidence-based consumer products produced by the NIDILRR community:

In addition to the above consumer products, the Temple University Rehabilitation Research and Training Center (RRTC) on Community Living and Participation of People with Serious Mental Illness (TU Collaborative)[CJ1]  offers many resources focused on family engagement and creating welcoming environments, including education, welcoming communities, physical activity, and recreation and leisure.

To learn more about these and other products from the NIDILRR community, contact NARIC’s information specialists.
