Regardless of whether someone is born with a disability or develops one later in life, they have legal rights. Yet, it can be hard to know where to turn to get the information that you need about disabilities, disability law and special education. Below are the top 20 Twitter feeds of disability advocates and disability law experts.
The list is based on Twitter data culled according to content, follower/following ratios, frequency of tweets, blog popularity, the opinions of other divorce experts and influencers, as well as our own subjective judgment.
Note: Some influential voices are not included, either because they don't have active Twitter accounts, or because they only tweet about disability sporadically. Here, our goal is to provide the best possible stream of disability law news, analyses and insight.
