» Our Community of Stakeholders

It would be accurate to say that all of society are stakeholders in disabilities. All of us play some role. Policies that govern “disabled parking,” for example, impacts all drivers in some way and all tax payers will have something to say about how their tax dollars are spent as it relates to service. That said, some individuals and organizations have a vested interest in disability, so for the purpose of TPI, it is these individuals and groups who are formally considered stakeholders.

Our work feeds decisions-makers at all levels. If a group makes decisions that will impact disability issues, they are stakeholders. These groups range from legislators to school-agency leaders to families and those with disabilities. We have listed just a few of these types of stakeholders below.
