Yellow Pages for Kids with Disabilities

We built the Florida Yellow Pages for Kids with Disabilities so people can get reliable information and support. Your state Yellow Pages includes many resources - government programs, grassroots organizations, and parent support groups.

We are adding evaluators, educational consultants, academic tutors, advocates, attorneys, and others who help parents get services for their children. The Yellow Pages are a free service. If you are interested in being added to the yellow pages please send us an email.
