Respect Ability – Spanish Disability Guide for Parents

Respect Ability – Spanish Disability Guide for Parents

World Enabled and RespectAbility fight against stigma and promote opportunities for people with disabilities. They joined forces to develop a Spanish and English language resource guide aimed at empowering Latinx communities in the US. We identified that that was a great need for culturally relevant content that will allow parents of children with disabilities to understand their rights. As the nation becomes increasingly diverse, so too are the demographics of the community of people with disabilities. In co-authoring the RespectAbility resource, Dr Pineda stated that, “Our goal is to help address the critical need for information, education and work for this historically marginalized population”. The guide provides resources and insights to empower a new generation of latinx youth with disabilities.
