During May, which is National Stroke Awareness Month, the American Stroke Association strives to educate the public that stroke is the leading cause of serious, long term disability. Here are some important statistics:
Money Follows the Person (MFP) Technical Assistance (TA) Needs Assessment is a survey that collects data on states' progress and TA needs in implementing the MFP Demonstration.
The MFP TA Tracker allows MFP-related professionals to track technical assistance requests and outcomes. It allows users to track assigned requests, reassign them to other users, add comments to requests and more.
The Disability Equality Index (DEI) brings together AAPD, the nation’s largest disability rights organization, and the USBLN, the leading national business-to-business network, to collectively advance the inclusion of people with disabilities. The organizations are complimentary and bring unique strengths that make the project relevant and credible to corporate America and the disability community.
The National Clearinghouse of Rehabilitation Training Materials (NCRTM) website offers the vocational rehabilitation and education communities an opportunity to contribute new knowledge to their specific fields and gain visibility for their work.
The Interagency Committee on Disability Research (ICDR) website is designed to assist the ICDR in its goal to promote coordination and cooperation among federal departments and agencies conducting disability, independent living, and rehabilitation research programs. It provides information about ICDR activities, resources and accomplishments.
