The Coming Home to Work (CHTW) Program is Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment's (VR&E's) primary early intervention and outreach program. Through this initiative, all VR&E services are available to eligible servicemembers and veterans. Participants work with a Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor (VRC) to determine eligibility and entitlement to VR&E services. Once entitlement is established, the VRC and the servicemember or veteran will work as a team to decide which employment track is most suitable based on each participant's individual needs. VR&E's goal is to assist eligible service members and veterans obtain and maintain suitable employment that will not aggravate their disabilities. This program does not replace or conflict with medical treatment or military requirements.

Our focus is new homes. Not government buildings, restaurants, etc. (important as they are). Our goal is to make ALL homes visitable, not just “special” homes — to be at the party, meeting, and family reunion . . . not isolated. We narrow the emphasis from a long list of access features to the most essential: entering a home and fitting through the interior doors. So that widespread construction change is more likely to happen quickly.

The Disability Law Index contains federal statutes and regulations organized by subject and includes court case opinions and legal articles that help interpret federal disability-related laws. This index is regularly updated; however, it is not an exhaustive resource. While the information provided through the index can inform readers, it is not intended to replace the need for legal counsel. Some opinions expressed in the court cases are only binding in particular areas of the country. The Disability Law Index is a project of the Southwest Disability and Business Technical Assistance Center (DBTAC), which is in turn housed within the Independent Living Research Utilization (ILRU).

A key to any effective communication is to focus on the communication itself – what information needs to be transmitted and how best to transmit it. Positive language empowers. When writing or speaking about people with disabilities, it is important to put the person first – to focus on the person, not the disability. Group designations, such as “the blind,” “the deaf” or “the disabled” are not empowering. It is important to use words that reflect individuality, equality or dignity – the person who is blind, the child who is deaf, the individual with a disability, for example. This resource is part of the U.S. Department of Labor's (DOL) Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP).

The NRS operates as a communication bridge to enable people who are deaf, hard of hearing or who have speech communication impairments and who use a TTY to communicate with hearing persons using a telephone via standard telephone service. Telephone calls that are made through the National Relay Service (NRS) follow similar etiquette as having a telephone conversation. The only difference is that there is a third party involved. This person is an operator known as the Relay Officer (RO) or the Communication Assistant (CA). To access the National Relay Service number by state, dial 711. The Relay Service is strictly confidential. All calls are kept private and there are no records of any conversations maintained. An RO/CA will not share the contents of any relay call, unless they are required to do so by state or federal law.This document was created by the National Business & Disability Council (NBDC). The contact information here is for the NBDC.

Guidelines for Reporting and Writing on People with Disabilities



 
As professional communicators, educators, and human service providers, you are in a unique position to shape the public image of people with disabilities. The words and images you use can create either a straightforward, positive view of people with disabilities or an insensitive portrayal that reinforces common myths and is a form of discrimination. Here is a set of clear guidelines to help you make better choices in terms of language and portrayal. The Guidelines explain preferred terminology and offer suggestions for appropriate ways to describe people with disabilities. The Guidelines reflect input from over 100 national disability organizations and has been reviewed and endorsed by media and disability experts throughout the country.

Accessible design must be a part of this new philosophy of exhibition development because people with disabilities are a part of museums' diverse audience. Discovering exciting, attractive ways to make exhibitions accessible will most directly serve people with disabilities and older adults. But to name an audience who will not benefit by these designs is impossible. Accessibility begins as a mandate to serve people who have been discriminated against for centuries; it prevails as a tool that serves diverse audiences for a lifetime.

Relay Services is a communication service for the deaf, hard-of-hearing and speech-disabled communities who wish to communicate with a hearing person who uses a standard telephone. Standard TTY relay calls are generally made using a teletype writer, also known as a TTY, a communications device equipped with a keyboard for typing messages and a screen for reading messages. The TTY is connected to standard phone lines and the user dials a Communications Assistant directly. Once connected, the TTY user types their message to the Communications Assistant who relays it by reading it aloud to the hearing person. The Communications Assistant then listens to the hearing person’s reply and relays it back to the TTY user through type. The TRS is part of the Federal Communications Commission's (FCC) Disability Rights Office (DRO).

Usablenet Assistive (UA) is an end-to-end web accessibility platform designed to help a company immediately and comprehensively improve web accessibility, compliance, and support for people with disabilities including users of assistive technologies, for example, blind people using screen-reading devices. Usablenet Assistive creates a dynamically generated, text-only, and accessible (compliant with standards such as ADA, Section 508, W3C, etc) view of a company’s entire web site and services. UA is not a ‘second’ site, but instead creates a dynamic accessible view of the main site that always reflects the most up-to-date content and services. As the main site changes constantly (in the way of enterprise web sites), each and every change is dynamically reflected in the accessible view created by the UA platform.
