About Us

The Disability Information Network

Over the last two decades, there has been an explosion of information on the internet for the disability community. That community includes people with disabilities, their families, friends, caregivers, and all those who work with them – health care professionals, social workers, educators – and care about them.

This web site was conceived out of a desire to make a difference in how that information is provided, in greater detail, with specific instructions on how to make the system work for all of us.

I am a woman with a disability, and the mother of three children with developmental disabilities. Because I was trained as a lawyer, I have been able to access information and resources in a way that many people have not. My goal is to use my experience, at work and at home, to help us all live fuller, richer lives in our communities.
