Minnesota Online Special Needs Directory

It's published by Jenzi Silverman at the UMN Dept of Educational Psychology. It's very plain -- there's not even notation of last revised date. I don't find the organization terribly useful, it's crying out for an embedded Google search box, but it's the only place I found an (obsolete!) link to the interesting Eagan ProAct agency that works on employment skill development.

Clearly I need to create a custom google search for MN special needs resources and show Jenzi how to embed it in her directory page. More on that soon (I hope).
