Among other activities, the NDNRC will publish 17 fact sheets with more information regarding specific disability related issues and state specific information as well.

Health and Disability Tools

NACCHO's Toolbox is a free, online collection of local public health tools produced by members of the public health community. Tools within the Toolbox are materials and resources public health professionals and other external stakeholders can use to inform and improve their work in the promotion and advancement of public health objectives.

Disability-specific tools include the Disability and Health Data System, which is intended to be used by public health professionals to translate state-level, disability-specific data into public health information, American Sign Language Videos for preparedness, and resources for performing health assessments for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities including a training video and assessment protocol.

Use these tools to inform and improve your work or submit examples of your success. More »
