Educating young people to take active, constructive roles in our democracy is important for all learners. It is particularly important for young people with learning disabilities, attention issues, and other disabilities, who often find themselves marginalized in decisions that affect them. This is why the Learning Disabilities Association of America (LDA) is a proud partner of the Educating for American Democracy (EAD) initiative, an important new movement to reprioritize the importance of history and civics learning within K-12 education.
