Disabilities WebQuest

As with any research task, start with general information first.
Use the Connecticut Digital Library ( and access the Health & Wellness database for definitions and articles about the disability that you are studying. Also be sure to use general reference tools such as encyclopedias to help you with definitions: try Worldbook online (from school) or Wikipedia (a free, online encyclopedia).
