Links – World Disability Resources


This page contains a variety of international disability resources (outside of the UK & USA) that you may find useful. The links are divided into headings if that helps you jump through the page.

Be sure to check out the other links pages in the menu bar, as well as my posts & videos about my own disability, and videos by others on aniridia, nystagmussight lossdisability.

If you have any links you think I should add here, you can contact me on Twitter, Facebook or email.
