An Acronym List

An Acronym List .  A legacy resource from NICHCY updated May 2014

The disability community is full of acronyms that people constantly use in writing and in conversation, and it’s important to know what those acronyms stand for. Acronyms are used in order to abbreviate names or phrases. This is a resource provided by the Center for Parent Information and Resources (CPIR).
