Florida State University came under scrutiny when a student began a Twitter thread calling out what she says is a lack of accessibility for disabled students on campus.

Kathryn Cosson says she feels DCF isn't doing enough to provide assistance to people with disabilities in applying and re-certifying for social services, like food stamps.
Florida Legal Services

Florida Legal Services and Disability Rights Florida want the state to clarify how it handles social service applications from people who are disabled. The organizations are concerned thousands of disabled Floridians can’t apply for food stamps or other services in the state’s online system.
