Wyoming ADA Resources

Are you or someone you know in need information for and resources available to Wyoming residents with a disability?

If so, start with your health care provider. They may be able to get you started with information as to what is available in your area as well as at a state level. A good health care\medical provider should have the information you need to put you on the path of finding out what services and resources are available and how to contact others that will have more information.

Another place to begin is Wyoming Department of Workforce Services. Within the Department of Workforce Services, you will find information about disability determination services as well as vocational rehabilitation locations and offices. The Social Security Disability Determination Services and Wyoming Vocational Rehabilitation websites may answer a lot of questions and will provide you more points of contact if you need to pursue getting more information and resources. You can also contact your local Workforce Services office for more individual assistance.

The Rocky Mountain ADA Center has information on Wyoming resources as well as for five other Rocky Mountain states. You can also find information regarding services for regions outside the Rocky Mountain area.

The Americans with Disabilities Act federal regulations can be found at ADA.gov.
