Life with a disability may have obstacles. Financial and educational programs for people with disabilities have been created by The United States government. The list below is what HypoGal has found to be the Best Disability Programs Government Offers.
Early Intervention Program for Infants and Toddlers with Disabilities-Each state receives money to help parents identify if their infant or toddler (birth through age two) is disabled. If a child is found to be experiencing any sort of developmental delay (cognitive, physical, communication, social, emotional or self-help), the state may then (at a minimum) provide the funds for evaluations and assessments, service coordination and the development and review of an Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP), which are available at no cost for eligible infants and toddlers with disabilities.
Family/Professional Partnerships Program: Family-to-Family Health Information Centers Program is to promote optimal health for children (and youth) with special health care needs (CSHCN). The centers offer statewide, family-staffed centers assist families of CSHCN to make informed choices about health care.
Federal Student Aid– If you have a disability or certain type of job you may be able to have your federal student loan discharged, forgiven or canceled.
National Center on Physical Activity and Disability (NCHPAD)- is a resource for research and practice information in the area of health promotion and physical activity for persons with disabilities.
Section 811 Supportive Housing for Persons with Disabilities-allows persons with disabilities to live as independently as possible in the community by subsidizing rental housing opportunities which provide access to appropriate supportive services.
