LDA Today - May/June 2015

As summer approaches, thoughts generally turn to vacation plans, what books we're going to read, how to keep the kids busy, and home maintenance projects. As we tackle some of the more mundane chores in our lives, perhaps we can make opportunities for reflection and planning for community leadership discussed in President Nancie Payne has provided an insightful article.

Articles from the Conference Committee, Nominating Committee, and the State Presidents’ Representative update you on LDA. The passing of Dr. Janet Lerner, long-time LDA supporter and pioneer in the field of learning disabilities, is reported with great sadness.

Transition issues are covered in Who Owns the Future? and College Support Services and Student Self-Advocacy. Tips for helping your children over the summer are shared in Days of Summer Fun with your Early Childhood Learner. Reminders of supplies you may need in case of a disaster are included in Be Prepared for an Emergency. Be Red Cross Ready.

IDEA Maintenance of Effort Regulations, eliminating toxic chemicals from vinyl flooring, and the formation of a student club, the Student Learning Disabilities Association of The Citadel round out the newsletter.

If you have a suggestion for an article or a topic, please feel free to write us at info@ldaamerica.org. Our next issue will have a Back-to-School theme, including pre-school to postsecondary.

May you all enjoy a great summer as memories of this past winter continue to fade!
