State of the States in Cognitive Disabilities

Tech used: , ,

State of the States in Cognitive Disabilities is a “sister institution” of the Coleman Institute for Cognitive Disabilities — they share office space and there is some staff overlap. I build their original website for them 10 years or so ago, migrated that static site to Joomla some years later, then in 2011 we added a significant and popular new custom charting feature.

The State of the States project compiles and publishes statistics on various categories of expenditures on developmental disabilities. These data are used by policy makers and advocates, and we increased their usefulness by creating a feature that allows users to compare expenditures by category for selected states, using JavaScript, PHP, and a fine charting application from FusionCharts to display data gathered into a large spreadsheet.
