National Dissemination Center for Children with Disabilities (NICHCY)
NICHCY served the nation as a central source of information on disabilities in infants, toddlers, children, and youth. Here, you could also find easy-to-read information on IDEA, the law authorizing early intervention services and special education.
Unfortunately, this sight no longer exits. NICHCY was funded for decades by the Office of Special Education Programs, at the U.S. Department of Education. The project’s funding ended on September 30, 2014.
Much of the rich library of materials and publications that NICHCY produced over the years has a new home here, on this website of the Center for Parent Information & Resources (CPIR). Unfortunately, the page you were coming to was not transferred to the CPIR because it was no longer accurate or up-to-date.
CPIR regrets any inconvenience this may cause you, but would urge you to roam our site and look through the wealth of current information we are pleased to offer, including the legacy resources from NICHCY.
