Resource Directory & Access Guide for Allied Health Professionals by the Family Centered Program on Intervention.
Ohio State Univ., Columbus. Herschel W. Nisonger Center.
The manual is intended to help students and professionals in allied health fields find resources for helping disabled students and adults and their families. The first and largest section is a directory of organizations classified according to 15 topics, including advocacy, alcoholism, blindness and visual impairment, child abuse, learning disabilities, state and federal governmental agencies, and mental health and mental retardation. Entries list address, phone number, and a brief description of the organization and its services. Following the organizations directory is an annotated listing of publications (directories, catalogs, pamphlets, and self help guides) in 12 areas, such as accessibility/travel, health care, income support programs, recreation/camps, and sex education. An access guide focuses on advocacy approaches and procedures, and considers such issues as due process, finding services, and negotiation. A legislative summary concludes the manual with references to major federal laws and regulations affecting the mentally retarded/developmentally disabled population. (CL)
