Learning Disabilities Association of America website can be useful for counselors and clients alike. The LDA states its purpose to be advancing the education and general welfare of children and adults of normal or potentially normal intelligence who manifest disabilities of a perceptual, conceptual or coordinative nature. I was impressed by the site's explanation and breakdown of ways to empower and advocate those with learning disabilities. ~Nick~

This Speech Disorders website gives information on types of speech disorders such as Apraxia, Articulation, Aphasia, Dysarthria, Language delay, and more.  Provided through this site is an understanding of the speech disorders and how they may affect a persons mental state.  There were example true stories of people suffering from these disorders and hoe it has influenced their mental state.  I thought the site was set up in a manner to easily access the disorder of your choice.  It provided a lot of information.  ~Kathleen~

The Social Security Administration website is great because many of my clients ask me information about their Social Security and Social Security Disability that I can't answer.  Sometimes if you call the local Social Security office you get put on hold and some people are not patient enough to wait.  This site answers every question from who can apply for benefits to getting insurance for the mentally ill.  It also has information for people that are hearing impaired.  Plus, this site is always updated with information about employment programs for people with disabilities. ~Jodi~

The Deaf Counseling Advocacy and Referral Agency provides this site. It offers the Deaf Community many different counseling opportunities.  Some of their links topics include:  the Deaf Gay and Lesbian Center, educational and job/career opportunities, foreign born Deaf, job development and placement, and many outreach programs.

The website for the Council on Quality and Leadership for People with Disabilities, typically referred to simply as the Council.  If you are involved with people with disabilities or the agencies that serve them, make a point of spending some time on this website.  As many such agencies in our area are moving towards accreditation, note that this is the accrediting organization.  The Council uses personal outcome measures as its means of evaluating/accrediting organizations and the quality of care that they provide.  It makes for an interesting, though at times difficult to understand, process.  (Mark)
