Supporting Youth with Disabilities - A Resource Guide for Programs

All of the issues that affect young people, such as access to education, employment, health care, and social services, also affect youth with disabilities, but in a far more complex way. Most young people with disabilities want to be able to attend the same afterschool, summer, and other youth programs as their non-disabled friends, and in many cases, this is possible when inclusion methods are utilized.

DCYF created this page in order to support our grantees, and any other youth-serving program, that wants to create a more inclusive space for youth with disabilities.

We are happy to incorporate feedback and suggestions you have about this page. Please let us know what you want us to share at info@dcyf.org.
