Disability.gov Redesigned

disabilty.gov logo
Disability.gov has redesigned and is looking good. It's pretty well laid out, with information on benefits, civil rights, community life, education, emergency preparedness, employment, health, housing, technology and transportation. Information can also be found by searching by state. There is also an easy mechanism to recommend a resource for consideration.

I especially like the tone of the site, it's direct and broad based. It doesn't seem to presume that disability is either using a wheelchair or an individual who is blind. It is exemplified in the slide show on the home page, which as both a wheel chair user, as well as an individual who is blind) but has pictures of individuals with no visible disability.


(Unlike ODEP which apparently felt that the picture for the recent Business Sense letter wasn't diverse enough and appears to have photoshopped in a man of color and a woman in a wheelchair. See the picture for yourself.)

Thanks for supporting Maine VRC.
