LDA of South Dakota

The Learning Disabilities Association of South Dakota was incorporated in May 1996. Since then, it has grown from its original Rapid City location to points across the state. In May 1998, the Association received its 501 (c) 3 non-profit status from the IRS.

The Association conducts workshops and conferences, assists local communities in forming local branches, collaborates with other organizations with similar missions and concerns, and provides one-on-one assistance to individuals and families. Most visible among its efforts is its statewide annual conference.

The strength of this Association is found in the commitment and dedication of parents, persons with learning disabilities, educators and other professionals who offer their time, energy and experience. This wealth of caring enables LDA-SD to offer workshops, conferences, special projects and individual assistance throughout the state of South Dakota.

    DIY Shouldn’t Be Deadly!

    This week, LDA and 16 LDA state affiliates, along with partner organizations, sent a letter urging Lowe’s to take swift action to protect people from methylene chloride and N-methyl pyrrolidone (NMP), toxic chemicals commonly found in paint strippers sold in Lowe’s stores throughout the country.
