There have been reports of phone calls made from a Department of Labor phone number (202-693-2700) soliciting personal information and/or promising funds to those receiving the calls. These calls were not authorized by the Department of Labor. ETA and the Department of Labor do not and will not solicit Personally Identifiable Information, such as your Social Security number, or other personal information, over the phone. If you receive a call like this from a number that looks like an ETA phone number, consider it a spam call, hang up, and report the call to the US Department of Labor at 1-855-522-6748.

For more information about how to recognize spam calls, please reference the IRS site about recognizing these imposter calls: https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/how-to-know-its-really-the-irs-calling-or-knocking-on-your-door-0

Title :
  The Learning Disabled in Employment and Training Programs
Release Date :
Abstract :
  This report focuses on improvements in determining individual needs of Job Training Partnership Act participants with learning disabilities, and in providing the training and support services that meet those needs. Since there are no current statistics on the learning disabled population in employment and training programs, estimates of the proportion of employment and training participants who might be learning disabled were developed in this study by extrapolating from what is known about: (a) persons who are functionally illiterate, and (b) persons who are learning disabled. In addition, this report includes a discussion of the current state of knowledge regarding assessing and training adults with learning disabilities.
