The National Dissemination Center for Children with Disabilities web site provides information on:

*disabilities in infants, toddlers, children, and youth,
*IDEA, which is the law authorizing special education,
*No Child Left Behind (as it relates to children with disabilities), and
*research-based information on effective educational practices

They have a state by state directory of state agencies serving children and youth with disabilities, state chapters of disability associations and parent groups, parent training and information projects, and contact information for state governors and sentaors. While by no means comprehensive, this is a good place to start looking for resources.

They also have a page set up for kids called "Zigawhat!"

It covers a broad spectrum of disabilities, but could be useful. They also date their information, so you know how current it is.
