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.

It started out as a simple op-ed in The Palm Beach Post. This led to conversations with reporters from The New York Times and National Public Radio (NPR). I also found a general inquiry for someone to talk to EdWeek about the subject. Although I wasn’t directly quoted in the articles included here, I was able to give them extensive information, including legal background on the issues surrounding school choice policies and current proposals for expansion… Read More »
