Resources on Disabilities
Learning disabilities affect people regardless of gender, race, or socioeconomic status. If you think
you or someone you know may have a learning disability, the first step in getting assistance is understanding
what learning disabilities are and how to get help. We have assembled several sites that contain basic
information on the ABCs of learning disabilities and more specific information explaining everything from
test assessment to study skills.
HEATH Resource Center
Serves as a national information exchange about educational support services, policies, procedures, adaptations,
and opportunities at American campuses, vocational-technical schools, and other training providers. Also
available on the site are a quarterly electronic newsletter, various resources and publications, commonly asked
questions regarding learning disabilities, and other helpful links.
Learning Disabilities Association of America
Contains links to state and regional resource centers, publications and resources for people with learning
disabilities, fact sheets and bulletin alerts, and adult support group information.
The National Adult Literacy and Learning Disabilities Center
Promotes awareness about the relationship between adult literacy and learning disabilities, builds the capacity of
literacy practitioners to help identify and serve adult students with suspected or diagnosed learning disabilities,
and produces and refines materials that enhance the knowledge base for adult literacy and learning disabilities. Offers
an extensive information exchange network as well as targeted training and technical assistance programs.
National Center for Learning Disabilities
Promotes public awareness and understanding of children and adults with learning disabilities, and provides national
leadership on their behalf so they may achieve their potential and enjoy full participation in our society. This site
contains basic information on learning disabilities, including individual legal rights, test assessment information,
and a wide variety of resources.
