NIDILRR-Funded Consumer Products: Education for People with Disabilities

People with disabilities have the right to an education, just like their peers without disabilities. However, people with disabilities, including children and young people with disabilities, may face barriers to their education and within the educational system in their communities. These barriers may include physical barriers, such as school buildings without ramps or elevators; communication barriers, such as a lack of American Sign Language (ASL) interpreters; a lack of transition services as children with disabilities transition from grade school to high school or from high school to college or employment; and schools that may not be inclusive, among others. Laws, such as the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) help learners with disabilities by setting legal standards in education and access to education, among others, that schools and education professionals must follow.

NARIC’s information specialists are often asked for information and resources related to education for children, youth, and adults with disabilities and for information and resources for their parents, families, service providers, and educators. For November, we are sharing consumer products on education that are created by projects funded by NIDILRR. They may include guides, factsheets, and infocomics, among others.

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