consumer publications in a wide variety of fields. Here are some
of their comments:
- New Mobility, Oct.
Love This Newsletter
"One of the things I've noticed about online disability
message boards and
newsgroups is that they're always full of requests for information,
sometimes commonplace, sometimes esoteric: "Where can I
purchase a used
lift-equipped van?" "Is there someone out there who
can train my chihuahua
as a service dog?" "My boss just fired me for keying
his car because it was
parked in a handicapped spot - can I sue the bastard?" Wading
these queries can be annoying, but I don't dare complain. After
all, I may
be in need of a clue or two myself some day.
"If you're a crip in need of info, check out Disability
This well-produced newsletter is chock-full of straightforward
phone numbers, addresses, book titles and Web site URLs on issues
to all types of disabilities. DRM also maintains an easy-to-navigate
site (www.disabilityresources.org)...." -- Douglas Lathrop
- American Libraries, Jan. 1994
Resources Monthly is a succinct, up-to-date,
newsletter that premiered in August full of information
about unusual and hard-to-find services for people with disabilities.
A sampling of the September and October issues gleans articles
on funding resources such as scholarships, loans, grants, and
awards, and a short piece on free correspondence courses on audiocassette
for visually impaired people. All types of resources
are described, including a guide to closed-captioned
video, a consumer survey of lightweight wheelchairs, an 800 number
to call for information about depressive disorders, and the location
of a resource center for farmers and ranchers with physical disabilities."
- OT Week, Nov. 3, 1994
editor], a librarian who specializes in resources related to
disability, helps people discover the best publications
and other tools by summarizing new disability resources
- from travel guidebooks to pamphlets on parenting to on-line
- Public Libraries, Nov./Dec.
four-page newsletter, prepunched for three-ring binders, identifies
books, pamphlets, organizations, videotapes, and computer-based
resources that offer information to and about people with disabilities.
Information is available not only for widely recognized
groups, such as people with deafness or wheelchair users,
but also for specialized groups, such as parents
of children with disabilities in U.S. military communities. A
sample of subjects referenced in one year includes
the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), assistive technology,
educational inclusion, financial aid sources, housing, parents
with disabilities, telecommunications, and wheelchair selection.
Reviews of publications are timely (almost all
resources cited in 1994 were published in 1993 or 1994) and often
indicate items from small, lesser known companies and organizations....
the wide range of information needed by people with disabilities
and those associated with them, this newsletter is a worthwhile
and relatively inexpensive way to find a very wide range of resources.
