  • Cerebral Palsy Guide: Cerebral palsy (CP) is a disability caused by brain damage that restricts normal movement and coordination. Each year, 10,000 children in the U.S. are diagnosed with cerebral palsy. Cerebral Palsy Guide provides free educational materials, financial options and support to help those across the country affected by this disorder.
  • Disability Rights Center: The Disabilities Rights Center (DRC) is New Hampshire's designated Protection and Advocacy agency and authorized by federal statute "to pursue legal, administrative and other appropriate remedies" on behalf of individuals with disabilities in New Hampshire. The DRC provides information, referral, advice, and legal representation and advocacy to individuals with disabilities on a wide range of disability-related problems.
  • Institute on Disability: Planning for and providing support to a loved one who is aging or living with a chronic illness or disability is a common experience for almost everyone at some point in life. The process, however, can be arduous and presents a number of challenges that prevent individuals from living as they choose. The path to navigate the maze of medical and community supports can be complex and time consuming. Individuals and families often struggle to define and create a network of supports, and service providers frequently experience significant time and funding constraints.
  • Stepping Stones: Stepping Stones is a guidebook for people with disabilities, their families and the professionals who work with them. We collect stories from many sources including family members, people living with disabilities and advocates. Stepping Stones is a specialty publication of Parenting NH sponsored by The NH Council on Developmental Disabilities and Crotched Mountain Foundation.
  • Tax Tips for the Legally Disabled: Several tax breaks are available for people living with disabilities. These tax breaks aren't always obvious, though. You have to know where to look for them.
  • Wheelchair Health In Motion: Wheelchair Health In Motion (WHIM) is a peer-driven program that provides the tools for increasing quality of life and promoting wellness in wheelchair-using individuals living with a physical disability through innovative chair exercise and peer support within their own community. WHIM is focused on helping individuals who use a wheelchair for mobility gain access to health promoting activities and information that will encourage opportunities to enhance quality of life through improved mental and physical health status.
