Directory of Organizations.
NICHY News Digest, n22 Feb 1997
This directory lists over 80 national organizations that provide information, services, and/or referrals to individuals in the disability field, including parents, special educators and general educators, early interventionists, administrators, related services personnel, persons with disabilities, and others. Addresses, telephone and fax numbers, e-mail addresses, and a short description of each organization's activities are provided to help readers identify which resources are best suited to their needs and concerns. The organizations are grouped according to their primary emphasis in the following categories: (1) general disability information; (2) organizations for families; (3) legal rights and information; (4) early intervention; (5) special education; (6) transition; (7) financial assistance and information; and (8) organizations addressing minority concerns. Because many of the organizations have more than one purpose, each section includes a list of relevant organizations that are listed in other areas of the directory. An index at the end of the directory lists the name of each organization and the page number where it is described. (CR)
