The Complete Learning Disabilities Resource Guide Review

“The 20th edition of The Complete Learning Disabilities Directory begins with an introduction, a handy glossary, a user’s guide, and a user’s key. These are followed by 21 sections, such as Associations & Organizations, Government Agencies, Learning Centers, and Testing Resources. The book concludes with three indexes: “Geographic Index,” “Entry & Publisher Name Index,” and “Subject Index.” The indexes refer to the entry numbers used throughout the book. There are guide words at the tops of pages, and each section is clearly subdivided to facilitate use. For example, in the section on ADHD, material is grouped by national programs, publications/videos, and websites. Within these groups, lists are alphabetic. The information provided for each entry varies, but all have basic contact information, the name of the director or key executive, and a brief description. This reliable and timely reference will save caregivers and professionals valuable time. It is recommended for public libraries and academic libraries serving schools of education…”
