Summary

This guide is designed for adults who suspect or know they have a learning disability and for family and friends who wish to help. It is intended to provide a starting point for gaining information that can lead to obtaining services at the state or local level. It provides information on assessing the problem, a learning disabilities checklist, and a selection of resources--organizations, publications, and programs. This selection of resources includes only organizations that operate on a national level and can put inquirers in contact with regional or local resources that have been selected. A short description of each organization's activities is provided to help readers identify which resources are best suited to their needs and concerns. The organizations are of the following types: 14 national resource centers; 9 general education organizations; 7 learning disabilities organizations; 4 attention deficit disorder organizations; 4 employment organizations; and 5 technology organizations. The life management section lists 14 programs that provide postsecondary training and residential housing for their enrolled students. Twenty publications listed in the guide provide general information for adults with learning disabilities. A listing of 15 toll-free numbers concludes the guide. (YLB)
