May 2010 Archives

Editor's Note: Many of us unknowingly carry prejudices and misconceptions about people with disabilities. Sometimes, these are magnified in the media. This page was developed to put the media in touch with credible sources on people with disabilities and related issues. Most of the resources are contributions of Dr. Clyde Shideler, executive director of CE Disabled Services in San Luis Rey, Calif., and Marcia Carlson and Thomas Link of the University of Wisconsin.
