New to Disability? (Updated March 2017) (Center for Parent Information & Resources, CPIR)


Has a child’s disability recently touched your life? Are you visiting our website today looking for information about that disability? Would you like to find organizations and people that can help address the disability-related questions and concerns you may have?

We’re very pleased you’re here, because the CPIR has a great deal of information about disabilities to share. We hope this page will:

  • give you a quick roadmap to the disability world of help that’s available in the United States; and
  • point you to disability resources on this website and beyond that may come in handy, now and as time goes by.
