Disability and Cultural Diversity

Welcome to the Summer issue of the RAP Sheet. In the best of circumstances, obtaining an accurate diagnosis, finding appropriate supports, and navigating the maze of a bureaucratic service system can be overwhelming for individuals with disabilities and their families. These challenges are significantly compounded for those who are not members of the dominant or majority culture. In this issue we look at the importance of finding ways to meetthe needs of diverse communities.

DRC-NH, in collaboration with the UNH Institute on Disability and the New Hampshire Council on Developmental Disabilities, distribute a quarterly RAP sheet to educate community members and policy makers about the latest research, policy, practice, and advocacy issues affecting individuals with disabilities and their families.
