New Web site helps those with disabilities

From Staff Reports

   The Tennessee Council on Developmental Disabilities has developed a new Web site to help disabled individuals contact service organizations for assistance. The Web site, www.familypathfinder.org, offers information on topics such as independent living, employment, training, and mental health in the state.
   Those who use the Web site gain access to a database consisting of 1,400 Tennessee service providers through a county and/or type-of-service search. "Pathfinder is a one-stop Internet site that will quickly and easily link Tennesseans to all types of state and national disability information. The information will be right at their fingertips," said Wanda Willis, the executive director of the Tennessee Council on Developmental Disabilities.
   The Pathfinder project was funded by a grant from the Administration on Developmental Disabilities. The Web site also offers a link to national disability-related sites in Spanish.
