Resource for disability-related questions

[I have mod permission to post this.]

I run a community called accessportrayal (also on Dreamwidth under the same name), which is a place where people with disabilities can provide information (especially personal experience) aimed at writers who are considering portraying characters with disabilities. I also post links to other sites where useful articles are posted. The community rules, and a longer explanation, can be found at the community profile. So far, there are only a handful of entries, and representation is heavily stacked toward cognitive disabilities, but that will change.
