The FCLD Learning Disabilities Resource Guide: A State-By-State Directory of Special Programs, Schools, and Services. Revised.
Foundation for Children with Learning Disabilities, New York, NY.
The directory presents state-by-state listings for special programs, schools, and services for persons with learning disabilities. Listings cover all ages and grade levels, from infants to adults, from preschool to college. In addition to the listings, which consititute the bulk of the material, are sections on the nature and extent of LD, the rights of children with LD (regarding Individual Education Programs, due process, and discrimination complaints), and alternatives for LD adults (such as college, vocational training, and state and regional adult programs and services). Sources of information and help are presented in terms of national organizations, U.S. and Canadian agencies, LD information centers, and special materials for individuals with LD. State listings touch on organizational offices, State Department of Education LD personnel, private and day schools, summer camps and programs, college and university special programs and services, hospital clinics and other services. The guide concludes with an annotated list of books and other materials related to LD and a dictionary of LD terms. (CL)
