blackboard with the word "Blog" written on it in yellow.Since the Massachusetts Office on Disability (MOD) blog launched in 2015, we have had over 20,000 sessions and reached thousands of readers.   The purpose of our blog is to create and maintain an archive of succinct but nuanced information on a vast variety of disability related topics. The blog is also used to keep Massachusetts residents apprised of MOD’s initiatives, events, and activities.   We have blogged about structural access, service animals, benefits, disability history, web accessibility and more.  We have designed a survey to find out how we can continue to be an interesting and reliable source of disability related information.

Please take our brief, 5-question survey HERE.

We look forward to receiving your feedback!
