Doing Your Homework:
Using Flyers to Educate Others
by Sue Whitney, Research Editor, Wrightslaw

Print this page

Many organizations publish information about disabilities information, resources and advocacy opportunities available in the form of flyers. When you look over this collection, you'll find flyers that will be useful for members of your community.

Distribute informational flyers at schools, day care centers, public libraries, doctor's and psychologist's offices, community centers, and hospitals. Ask your child's tutor or advocate to pass them on.

Ask your school to include flyers with your school newsletter. Ask your school, public library, day care center, and support group to post flyers on their bulletin boards.

Ask your child's teacher to post flyers in the teacher's lounge and guidance office. Ask your PTA or SEPTA to distribute flyers.

Do some planning this week. Enlist a few friends to help.

Most of these flyers require you to have Adobe Acrobat software loaded on your computer before you can print the flyer. You can download this free software by clicking
