This guide helps parents of children with disabilities plan family outings in Connecticut that are stimulating and fun. Intended for parents of youngsters who use wheelchairs or who have visual, hearing or mental impairments, the book presents places throughout the state that are easily accessible and reasonably priced and that require little or no prior planning. For each place or activity the authors list location, directions, phone numbers, Web information, hours, admission fees, a brief description and an assessment of accessibility by type of disability.
