This is definitely the best site out there on learning disabilities. It is
always kept current. Many features, such as the online expert chats, are done
on an on-going basis. A calendar of upcoming events is presented and kept
current, as well. Information is available for teachers, parents, and
individuals with disabilities. The content varies from best practices in the
classroom to research-based articles. A definite resource for any classroom
teacher or teacher-in-training.
