How Well Does Your State Serve People with Disabilities?

Case for Inclusion LogoUnited Cerebral Palsy (UCP) released the 2015 Case for Inclusion today, an annual report and interactive website used to track state-by-state community living standards for Americans with disabilities. All 50 States and the District of Columbia (DC) are ranked each on a set of key indicators, including how people with disabilities live and participate in their communities, if they are satisfied with their lives, and how easily the services and supports they need are accessed. Also, the report digs into two critical issues facing people with disabilities and their families: waiting lists for services and support and transitioning from high school into adult life in the community. Since 2006, these rankings have enabled families, advocates, the media and policymakers to measure each state’s progress or lack thereof with hard data to help bolster advocacy.
