If you are a parent or teacher of a child with a learning disability – or have learning disabilities yourself – you are not alone.

Since 1963, Learning Disabilities Association of America (LDA) has provided support to people with learning disabilities, their parents, teachers and other professionals with  information on learning disabilities, practical solutions, and a network of resources.

Made possible by a grant from the Learning Disabilities Foundation of America, LDA provides articles, guides, and booklets on specific learning disabilities and related disorders and on mental issues, which can co-occur with learning challenges.
