Join NLCSD's closed Facebook group!

At the July meeting, many participants requested an easy way of communicating with the NLCSD community, and one suggestion was a closed group on Facebook. We encourage all members of NLCSD to join and to use it as a vehicle to share information, collaborate, and strengthen our cross-disability  group. Please use the link below to access the Facebook group.
