NIDILRR-funded Consumer Products: Parents of Children with Disabilities

Children may be born with disabilities, develop them as they grow, or acquire them through injury or illness. In addition to the everyday challenges and joys of raising a child, parents of children with disabilities may need additional support, such as service providers or assistive technology, to help their children with disabilities to grow, learn, play, and participate in their communities. Parents of children with disabilities may experience barriers in raising their children, including a lack of assistive technology for their children, societal views about children with disabilities, physical and programmatic barriers to their participation in the community, among others. Just like parents of children without disabilities, parents of children with disabilities may advocate for their children in educational, medical, recreational, and community settings.

NARIC’s information specialists are often asked for information and resources from parents of children with disabilities and their families to help them raise and advocate for their children, including assistive technology, service providers, and community programs. This month, we are highlighting evidence-based consumer products from the NIDILRR community for parents of 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:
