This directory of resources for disabled adults was compiled to assist state directors of the federally funded, state-administered Adult Education Program as well as administrators and practitioners in providing services for adults with disabilities. The first two sections include 15 federal and nonfederal organizations serving adults with various types of disabilities. Subsequent sections focus on adults with the following specific disabilities: mobility impaired (8 organizations); deaf and hearing impaired (9 organizations); blind and visually impaired (12 organizations); learning disabled (7 organizations); mentally retarded (6 organizations); and mentally ill (3 organizations). Each entry provides the organization's name, address, and telephone number; a brief program description; and the resources available. Resources listed include publications, library collections, information clearinghouses, service and educational programs, conferences, technical assistance, networking efforts, research and demonstration programs, and advertising campaigns.
