LDA Today - July/August 2014

We’re bringing you a shorter summer-edition of LDA Today.

Nancie Payne, President, shares her opinion on positive thoughts and beliefs forming a positive attitude for success. Dr. Jerry Schultz introduces the vision, function, and potential of the LDA Professional Advisory Board. Myrna Mandlawitz updates us on the recently released U.S. Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP), Results-Driven Accountability (RDA) system. There are six articles focusing on students returning to school, starting with the pre-K set through college level. With elections coming up in November, a reminder is provided to get nominating petitions in for those considering a run for their local school board. Our next issue will provide information on LD Month and news from state affiliates, as well as our usual columns.

If you have a suggestion for an article or a topic, please feel free to write us at info@ldaamerica.org.
