ORLANDO, a quiet farming town in 1970, now has more visitors than any other place in the state. The reason, of course, is Walt Disney World, which, along with Universal Studios Escape, Sea World and a host of themed attractions, pulls more than 25 million people a year to a previously featureless plot of scrubland. Few people head to Orlando proper, choosing instead one of the countless motels along Hwy-192, fifteen miles south, or International Drive, five miles southwest. Despite enormous expansion over the last decade, the town itself remains free of the commercialism that surrounds it.

Yellow Pages for Kids with Disabilities

We built the Florida Yellow Pages for Kids with Disabilities so people can get reliable information and support. The state Yellow Pages has many helpful 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.
