This article presents information resources for learning disabled children. "The School Daze of the Learning Disability Child," by W. Silva Engelson and M. Alpern is a kit for both parents and professionals. The kit is a basic guide for learning about learning disabilities. The materials explore the effect learning disabilities have on the home and school situations with some suggested steps to help modify the problem. The four printed components include a "Guide for Parents" which poses and answers questions frequently asked by parents. It also contains a workable if slightly out of date bibliography which is grouped into categories for parents, professionals and one on films. "Mosier Materials," by Katherine Mosier are patterned floor rugs which children can use for various activities. Three rugs have hands in different sizes, shapes, and colors while another has feet--for walking on. Three "Space Rugs" consist of printed circles. The rugs are intended to train children in forward backward and sideways movements; right and left; and north, south, east and west.
