About the Resource Directory

Exceptional Lives Resource Directory Screen - Map of MA Resources for Persons with Disabilities

Welcome to our free, user-friendly Disability Resource Directory – a searchable online database of disability programs and providers in Massachusetts.

It’s designed for parents and caregivers of children or adults with developmental disabilities – and professional care providers that serve them. It contains more than 1,200 resources in 54 service categories in areas such as:

  • Therapy (including speech, PT, OT, and ABA providers)
  • Education
  • Employment (including transition & vocational programs)
  • Medical & clinical
  • Adult programs (including housing & transportation services)
  • Parent & caregiver support
  • Legal help
  • Social & recreational (including after-school programs & summer camps)
  • Sibling support, family grants, and more.

You can do quick and easy searches by zip code, age, disability, and service type. You can see if a service is covered by MassHealth, or if a facility is wheelchair-accessible. Our initial disability types include ADD/ADHD, Autism spectrum disorder, bipolar disorder, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, and intellectual disability. With each search you get a printable resource list and a visual resource map displaying options in your local area – or across the state.
