Michigan Yellow Pages for Kids with Disabilities

We built the Michigan Yellow Pages for Kids with Disabilities so you can get reliable information and support. The Michigan Yellow Pages has many useful resources - evaluators, educational consultants, academic tutors, support groups, grassroots organizations, advocates, attorneys and others who help parents get services for their children.

If you provide a service, sign up to be listed on the Yellow Pages for Kids with Disabilities - this is a free service from Wrightslaw.
