The 1989 edition of the annual resource directory provides information on about 140 national, state, and local organizations that offer AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome) related services to deaf and hard-of-hearing persons. Organizations were selected for inclusion because they provide one or more of the following: TTY/TDD access, sign language interpreters, or educational materials or services geared toward deaf people. Organizations are listed alphabetically by organization name. Each entry provides organization address, phone numbers (including hotlines), access procedures, hours of operation, names and titles of key staff, geographic area served, organization description, information resources produced by the organization, and services provided. Two indexes are provided: the first lists organizations by state and foreign country (Canada and the United Kingdom); the second lists organizations that provide services nationally. (DB)
