LDA of Nebraska

Are you a person with learning disabilities, a parent of a child with learning disabilities, a professional working with individuals with learning disabilities, or an interested party visiting our web site? LDA of Nebraska welcomes you.

Your chances of knowing a person with learning disabilities are very good; they comprise 10-20% of the population, cutting across every segment of society. Can we afford the loss of the talents and contributions of this proportion of the population? Of even one person?

Sharing information about learning disabilities is our first priority and this is a grand opportunity to do just that. If you do not find the answers to your questions, help us to help you and perhaps others, by letting us know how we can better serve you.

Common learning disabilities are in the areas of reading (dyslexia), math (dyscalculia), and writing (dysgraphia), and are often further complicated by related disorders such as attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder. LDA of Nebraska believes that every person with learning disabilities can be successful in school, at work, in relationships, and in their community given the right opportunities and support! Our mission is to provide such support and increase opportunities for all people with learning disabilities.

    Tell EPA: All Families Deserve Clean Air

    In August, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency proposed to roll back vehicle emission standards intended to decrease air pollution and greenhouse gases. The clean car standards have been in place since 2012 and are working to protect public health. The EPA’s much weaker “SAFE Vehicle” standards will result in worsening air pollution. While we typically connect smog and ozone to asthma and lung disease, studies show that air pollution harms children’s developing brains, putting them at higher risk for learning and behavior challenges. Rolling back standards that protect children’s health is the wrong direction. We have until October 26th to… Read More »
