National information & advocacy resources.

These national organizations are information and advocacy resources for families and professionals. Many of these organizations provide a variety of services, others focus on more specific areas of concern. Numbers following each listing correspond to items listed in the Key to Services, which describes services provided by individual organizations. We have tried to list as much information as possible on each group, but it is best to contact the organization directly for a full description of services.

When available, e-mail addresses and World Wide Web sites have been included. E-mail addresses are indicated by the symbol, *. Web sites are listed with the standard http:// before each. (Unless otherwise indicated, all telephone numbers are for voice only.)
