Intended for junior high school learning disability resource teachers and other staff personnel, the handbook provides information on selecting and scheduling students into resource programs, establishing a resource room, developing and implementing curriculum for learning disability (LD) students, reporting the progress of students, and listing supportive services that are availble.

A fourth section includes information on content, teaching techniques, and materials for curriculum in reading, language arts (English, spelling, handwriting), and mathematics. Subsequent sections offer information on the student progress report, staff certification, and supportive services (resources in the school system and the community, and reading lists for parents and teachers). Appended are a list of junior and senior high corrective reading materials; a list of publishers; a survival word list; a handwriting grading slip; the text of Louisiana's Act 754; sample forms; and Louisiana minimum/maximum goals for reading.
