Tip Sheets and Resources

Tip Sheet fact sheets are tools for individuals and families with and without disabilities, service providers, students and trainees, and anyone interested in learning more about disabilities and disability-related topics. Produced by Vanderbilt Kennedy Communication and Dissemination services, Tip Sheet are offered on the science of specific disabilities, the effects disabilities might have on the individual and family, and treatment and service options. They also are tools for clinicians and educators who constantly seek service options for the families they work with.

Each fact sheet is a single-page, easy-to-hand-out flyer that can be downloaded at no cost. The front provides facts and information on the specific topic and the back is a summary of Vanderbilt Kennedy Center and Vanderbilt University resources that relate to the topic, as well as local and national resources.

By assisting us in distributing Tip Sheet, you will be helping families, clinicians, and educators locate additional resources, information, and support. Check back frequently! We will add new Tip Sheet fact sheets to this page bi-monthly.
