We know from experience that there are simply never enough hours in the day to research everything you need to know to help your child with a disability.
To help you lay your hands on the information you need with the least amount of fuss, we have gathered together a variety of resources we think you will find useful.
On the F.A.C.T Helpful Links page, you will find links to more than 50 organizations that serve people with disabilities.
Glossary of Disability Terms
Do you ever feel like you are swimming in an alphabet soup of IEPs, ADAs, and HQTs? Check out the F.A.C.T. Glossary to find out what all those letters mean.
Our letter templates have been developed to help you write letters to ask for meetings, or get access to important documents at your child’s school.
Our templates provide you with wording and framework for your request. All you have to do is add the information specific to your child. Each template is an easy to edit Microsoft Word document.
