Welcome to Our New Website!

We are so pleased to welcome you to the new Center for Independence of the Disabled, New York (or CIDNY) website!

We hope that you will enjoy the new design and features. We think that it will make it easier to find the information that you are looking for.

Site Navigation

We have reorganized the content and look of the site. There are now multiple ways to access the content that you need and there are more visuals and other breaks in the text. We included more icons for people with low English language literacy to be better able to access information and services.

Fresh Content

Our site now features more images, our social media feeds, a new blog, and updated content so that you can better understand what we’re up to and engage with us. 


We created the site using Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) guidelines. All of the images have alt text for screen readers. Our staff has done multiple rounds of testing of the site on desktop computers, mobile devices, computer monitor stand, and in JAWS screen reader, MAGic screen magnification software, and ZoomText magnifier and screen reader. If you encounter any issues or need a document on the site in an alternate format, please don’t hesitate to contact me at jpowers@cidny.org.


We included a Google translate widget so that pages can be translated into other languages, including the 23 languages other than English that are spoken by our team. 


You can now search throughout the website for the information and resources that you need.
