Information, Referral, and Library Services
Disability Resources has information on a network of agencies and services throughout the Pioneer Valley. Our staff can answer questions, provide phone numbers and addresses, and offer direction and support on issues relevant to individuals with disabilities and their families. We also have a resource library made up of books and videos on a wide variety of topics.
Whether addressing school children or business professionals, our presentations are designed to address questions, concerns and ideas about physical disabilities. Adapted play, such as wheelchair soccer, can also be incorporated to increase understanding and fun!
