Illinois Yellow Pages for Kids with Disabilities

We designed the Illinois Yellow Pages for Kids with Disabilities so people who love and work with our children can get reliable information, support and connect with one another. You will find different kinds of resources on this page - government programs, grassroots organizations, and support groups. To make it easy for you to find the information you need, we organized these groups alphabetically.
