This article presents information on various publications and programs related to learning disabilities. The book "Syntax, Speech and Hearing," by Alice H. Streng, presents the minimum essentials of English grammar that are necessary in order to guide children toward competent use of English. Those basic aspects of the language which are elementary and seem relevant to teaching learning disabled children are included in the text. "Speech Articulation Programs Compendium," is an unusual program designed to correct common speech articulation disorders among the American youth developed by the Southwest Regional Laboratory for Educational Research and Development. This marks the first significant effort to be made on behalf of the more than 1.7 million children enrolled in school whose speech and language problems require prolonged and specialized professional help. The book "Training That Makes Sense," written by A.J. Kirshner, an optometrist, reflects an optometrist's point of view but also contains many more techniques and a much wider range of ideas than are usually found in a volume on vision training.
