State Legislation for Children with Learning Disabilities. CEC State-Federal Information Clearinghouse for Exceptional Children Series on Government and the Exceptional Child, Volume I.
Council for Exceptional Children, Arlington, VA.
The first in a series of reports on the exceptional child and government, the publication is compiled from the laws of the 50 states and is specifically directed to the child with learning disabilities. Not included are the laws of states in which the learning disabled receive services when no specific legal provisions are made (an umbrella law covers all exceptional children) or when services have been extended by broadening legal labels such as "crippled,""maladjusted," or "health impaired." The document is updated through 1969; more current information will become available from the State-Federal Information Clearinghouse. Laws are cited from the following states: California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Idaho, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Texas, Washington, and West Virginia.
