This is not to be construed as legal, clinical or risk management advice. This is being done on an advisory basis as a courtesy for someone in need. The best resource we have seen on this topic is linked below – it is an e-publication that is long and in different sections.  One strategy it lists is to contact advocacy organizations for condition-specific disabilities.
