Listserv Groups and Topicbox Info
We have created several separate discussion groups, set forth below. Each one is intended to allow for enhanced focus on each particular issue. You may post to the main discussion group or any of the subsidiary groups, and access all of the postings.
I am setting forth below information about each group, and instructions on how to post to each and read the postings on each. You may subscribe to any or all of the groups (with the exception of the Advisory group - If you are interested in being on the Advisory Group, email ).
All of the groups, other than the Advisory group, are available to the public.
The description of each group is set forth below, and information about how how you can post to them and access them.
We have assembled a huge array of resources that are routinely updated, and are found on our TopicBox listserv site, separate from this website. Please visit https://disabilitywithoutabuse.topicbox.com
You can access all of the posts online, without subscribing - You do not have to subscribe to any of the groups to view our information. However, subscribing allows us to email you the posts as they are developed, to keep you informed.
There is no charge for these services, and registration is not required. You may also post to any of the groups, subject to moderation. Postings are all word searchable as well.
Please add your voice and insights to our work. We look forward to learning from you.
