October is Learning Disabilities Awareness Month!

LDButton-AwarenessMonthLearning Disabilities Association of America (LDA) is working hard this month to shine the spotlight on learning disabilities. It is important during Learning Disabilities (LD) Month to focus less on the disabilities aspect and focus more on the incredible abilities so many of these individuals possess as well as emphasize the phenomenal achievements and important strides so many of these individuals have made.

Membership in LDA is a way in which to support and nurture individuals with learning disabilities throughout not only the United States but the world. LDA does make a difference in the lives of those it touches. During the month of October we will be providing several additional benefits to membership:

      Hi Leticia, My name is Natalie Jaime and I work on putting together community screenings of Normal Isn’t Real: Succeeding with Learning Disabilities & ADHD. (www.normalisntreal.com). he goal of the film is to empower young people with learning and attention issues to become experts on what they need to thrive personally and professionally. Our audience is young people middle school age and older, their parents, teachers, counselors, and others who care about these issues.

      The film is a series of 4 documentary style videos featuring successful young adults sharing their stories of coming to terms with the issues related to their LD and ADHD. These candid portraits take the viewer into the subjects’ daily lives, showcasing their talents along with their frustrations and the personalized strategies they use to manage both. They come from diverse backgrounds and their journeys are as unique and varied as the careers they have developed.

      If there are any schools or groups in Northeast Philadelphia that you’d like me to reach out to, I’m happy to contact them to see if they’d have interest in hosting a screening. You can also reach me at natalie@normalisntreal.com .

    Should be awareness all year long for people who struggle whole life with no help from state or federal. We just fall through the cracks. I’m 45 and hanging on by a twig

    • I was recently diagnosed with a learning disability and my dad has dyslexia. i feel you i struggle so much in school and so did my dad but rembmer that there are people just like you and you have to keep working your hardest to show people who dont belive in you what you can do 🙂

    • I REALLY understand what you are saying and feeling. I just turned 53 and every year I feel my disability more.

  5. I have suffered a L.D. problem my whole life but I still did my best to live a normal life, I have a teenage daughter who is a very beautiful and smart girl however I struggle to help her with homework. I do my best but often have help from my family, she asked me today if there was an awareness for people like myself so I looked up and found this site I’m SO thankful that there are others out there who are willing to help and be kind to us because after all that is all we really need in life, to feel important, feel as if we fit in and cared about. Thank you and my God bless those who care about those with learning disabilities.

    I love the idea of spreading more awareness for learning disabilities. I had no idea that there was a whole month dedicated to this purpose. I think that it is so important for people to learn about disabilities like this. By understanding these disabilities I think that we can be more effective teachers, friends, and parents

    I would really like to participate in a month like this! I just found out my niece has a learning disability. My whole family wants to support her as much as we can. What kind of events can I hold in my area to create awareness? This is a great opportunity. http://www.learning-aids.com
