Special Needs National Toll-free Numbers & Web Sites
The following is a selected list of toll-free numbers and, new with this edition, Web sites for national organizations concerned with disability and children's issues. Inclusion on this list does not imply endorsement by NICHCY or the Office of Special Education Programs. There are also many national disability organizations providing services and information which do not have toll-free numbers. If you would like additional help in locating assistance, or you find that a phone number or Web address listed on this sheet doesn't work, contact NICHCY at 1.800.695.0285 (Voice/TTY) or visit our Web site (www.nichcy.org). Contact information for organizations, of course, is always changing and we try our very best to keep up!
