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.
