Report on organizations for individuals with disabilities

Several agencies and organizations for individuals with disabilities were discussed in this module. There are some agencies which serve similar missions in your local area. Please select one to study more in depth and report on. While this may be an online exploration, if possible, you are encouraged to personally visit the agency.

You may also report on an agency that you and/or someone you know has accessed. The expectation, however, is that this is a new learning experience. If you choose to report on an agency you are familiar with be sure to explain how your inquiry has deepened your understanding and perspective on the agency. In all cases, respond to the prompts below. In 1 page typed, double-spaced paper,
