Disability Legal Services of Indiana

Disability Legal Services of Indiana ensures access to education.


About Our Client

Disability Legal Services of Indiana (DLSI) was formed in 2008 in response to a concern over the lack of affordable educational advocacy and legal services for children with disabilities, particularly in the area of education law. When faced with concerns over special education services, parents, foster parents and other caregivers often feel overwhelmed and have few places to turn for assistance. 

DLSI fills this void. DLSI attorneys review each child’s educational needs and assist the families in obtaining an appropriate educational plan, a plan designed to fit the child’s individual needs and to prepare them for further education, employment, and independent living. 

What They Needed

DLSI needed a new website to better tell their story. Their previous site was not responsive and operated on an antiquated content management system. This made it difficult to read on a mobile - and updates were challenging to upload. The organization also depends on partnership donations and grants to help pay for their staff and attorney fees. Their Strategic Plan developed in 2018 called out for a new website to help share their message with potential donors and to appropriately recognize their contributions.

How We Helped

Clever Dogs created and launched a new website, powered by Zephyr CMS. We engaged board members to identify DLSI's strengths and develop appropriate messaging to their key audiences.

They selected a Zephyr theme that features strong images and clean font design. The site also has a robust responsive design - enabling smart phone users to view the information they need to secure services or donate to the organization.
