Email Discussion Lists on
Special Education and Disabilities
Here are snippets of information about email discussion lists addressing various aspects of disabilities and special education. Lists come and lists go, so there may be some outdated information here. Generally, you should be able to check the information by writing to the person managing the list; you can do so by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org where you substitute the name of the list for listnameand the mailing address (the stuff that follows the "at sign") for address.plc.
For example, to reach the owner of the list, BEHAVIOR, you would write a message to the address owner-BEHAVIOR@asum.inre.asu.edu.
When you send a request for a subscription, a computer program (the list-serving software) reads your request and acts on it. The software often uses the address from which the request is sent--some permit you to specify a different address--so you probably want to send such a request from your own email account. Some list-serving software permits you to include a real name in the subscription information, but some do not.
It's important not to send a request for a subscription to the list itself. Be sure that you correspond with the computer software that maintains the list of subscribers. Because you're writing to a computer program, send the commands correctly. There's not much room for creativity here. Notice that some subscription commands request that you insert your first and last name after the command, but others do not.
Here's how this resource works: It's organized alphabetically by subject area of the discussion list. The flush-left line of each entry gives the subject of the list; the first indented line gives the address for subscription (send a note to this address) and the second indented line gives the command (put this command in the body of the note).
