The Complete Learning Disabilities Resource Guide. 2019 Edition
Grey House Publishing
"The Complete Learning Disabilities Resource Guide" (formerly "The Complete Learning Disabilities Directory") has been a comprehensive and sought-after resource for professionals, families and individuals with learning disabilities since 1992. This twenty-first edition is the most comprehensive and current source of resources for the LD community available today, and a continual National Health Information Awards Winner for providing "...the Nation's Best Consumer Health Information Programs and Materials in the category of Health Promotion/Disease and Injury Prevention Information." "The Complete Learning Disabilities Resource Guide" supports the LD population, from those with a learning disability to their support network, in a number of ways. This edition starts with valuable front matter-both statistics about children and adults with learning disabilities-and a summary report from the National Center for Learning Disabilities (NCLSD). The report includes: (1) Understanding Learning and Attention Issues; (2) Identifying Struggling Students; (3) Supporting Academic Success; (4) Social, Emotional and Behavioral Challenges; (5) Transitioning to Life After High School; and (6) Recommended Policy Changes. This twenty-first edition, with 4,614 listings, provides a comprehensive look at the variety of resources available for the many different types of learning disabilities, from those that occur in spoken language, to those that affect organizational skills. It includes a wide array of testing resources, crucial for early diagnosis, and is arranged in subject-specific chapters for quick, effective research. The Table of Contents is your guide to this database in print form. The Complete Learning Disabilities Resource Guide is arranged into 21 major chapters and 100 subchapters, making it easy to pinpoint the exact type of desired reference, including Associations, National/State Programs, Publications, Audio/Video, Web Sites, Products, Conferences, Schools, Learning/Testing Centers, and Summer Programs. Listings provide thousands of valuable contact points, including 4,339 key executives, web sites, fax numbers, descriptions, founding year, designed-for age products, and size of LD population for schools. With valuable information for not only those individuals with LD, but also for parents, teachers and professionals, this edition offers answers to legal and advocacy questions, as well as specially designed computer software and a full range of assistive devices. "The Complete Learning Disabilities Resource Guide" gives you the confidence that this one resource is all you need. It assures those in the LD community that this crucial information is readily available at every school and library across the country, not just at state or district level special education resource centers. Now, every special education teacher, student, and parent can have, right at their fingertips, a wealth of information on the critical resources that are available to help individuals achieve in school and in their community. Chapters included in the books: (1) Associations & Organizations; (2) Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder; (3) Camps & Summer Programs; (4) Classroom Resources; (5) Conferences & Workshops; (6) Computer Resources; (7) Exchange Programs; (8) Government Agencies; (9) Literacy & Learning Skills; (10) Media: Books; (11) Media: Pamphlets; (12) Media: Publishers; (13) Media: Audio & Video; (14) Web Sites & Data Bases; (15) Professional Periodicals; (16) Professional Texts; (17) Schools & Colleges; (18) Learning Centers; (19) Testing Resources; and (20) Vocational & Transitional Skills.
