LDA of South Carolina

In March of 1963, parents of children with learning disabilities representing local support groups from around the country gathered in Chicago for a national conference. These concerned families organized into a national organization which was incorporated in 1964 as the Association for Children with Learning Disabilities (ACLD). From those beginnings, the Learning Disabilities Association of America has grown to serve tens of thousands of members with learning disabilities, their families, and the professionals who work with them.

The membership, composed of individuals with learning disabilities, family members, and concerned professionals, advocates for the almost three million students of school age with learning disabilities and for adults affected with learning disabilities.

The state and local affiliates, through their affiliation with the national LDA, work continuously for individuals with learning disabilities, their parents, and the professionals who serve them.

LDASC’s mission is to create opportunities for success for all individuals affected by learning disabilities and to reduce the incidence of learning disabilities in future generations.

    Groups sue EPA for refusing to ban brain-damaging pesticide

    Today, health and labor organizations sued the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for refusing to ban a widely used agricultural pesticide linked to damaging children’s brains and farmworker poisonings.

    “EPA has repeatedly found chlorpyrifos unsafe, especially to children, yet time and time again it refuses to protect kids,” said Patti Goldman, the Earthjustice managing attorney handling the case. “But Earthjustice and our clients won’t stand for this. The science and the law call for a chlorpyrifos ban. We are hopeful the courts will do the same for the sake of children and farmworkers.” Read More »
