    Using the internet, conduct a web search and provide the following information. You may need to visit more than one website to obtain all the information.

    DO NOT COPY AND PASTE THE INFORMATION. You must explain in your own words what each organization does as well as answer the questions in ‘your own words’. 

    1. List three (3) organizations with offices in Onondaga County (or your home County)
        that provide supports for persons with a disability. Make sure they are agencies or organizations,
        not programs.
     
        Choose three (3) different disability areas. For example, Mental Health, Developmental
        Disabilities, Mobility, Intellectual Disabilities, Visual or Auditory etc.
     
    2. For each organization, identify the target population. (e.g.) Who do they provide
        services for? (hint: There may be more than one.  “All disabilities” is not an
        acceptable response.) 

    3. What are the types of services provided?

    4. List at least three programs or services they provide and explain how the services help the
        consumer/participant/client. 
        (Using general terms such as “service coordination” or “advocacy and referral” are 
        not specific tasks and are not acceptable responses.)

    5. Identify whether those organizations are Non-Profit, Private or Government and how
        they are funded.

    6. List three (3) organizations that provide supports for children and/or families without a   
        disability.  (The agency provides no direct services for disabling conditions.)

    7. For each organization, identify the target population. (e.g.) Who do they provide
        services for? (hint: There may be more than one.)

    8. What are the types of services provided?

    9. List at least three services/programs they provide and explain how the services help the
        consumer/participant/client. 
        (Using general terms such as “service coordination” or “advocacy and referral” are 
        not specific tasks and are not acceptable responses.)

    10. Identify whether those organizations are Non-Profit, Private or Government and how
