|Disability.gov Updated with Resources and Social Media
The US Dept. of Labor has launched Disability.gov, a redesigned federal Web site that connects more than 50 million Americans with disabilities to thousands of resources on disability-related issues, programs and services. Formerly known as DisabilityInfo.gov, the site has been redesigned and updated with new social media tools, such as a blog and a Twitter feed, to encourage feedback and interaction among visitors. Disability.gov is not just for people with disabilities, but also for parents of children with disabilities, employers, workforce and human resource professionals, veterans, educators, caregivers and many others. Visitors can sign up for personalized news and updates, participate in online discussions and suggest resources for the site.
