I spent about 5 hours reading everything in this site. But you may choose
specific topics to reduce time. This site is very
informative and understandable for people with mental retardation and related
developmental disabilities and their family. Especially, the information
section is very helpful to understand for me as a student. The resources
section might be more helpful for teachers.

Technical Remarks:

I didn't have any problem to access and the address is very simple. This is very
organized and you may easily find out that you specifically want to.
