The National Center for Learning Disabilities (NCLD) works to ensure that the nation's 15 million children, adolescents, and adults with learning disabilities (LD) have every opportunity to succeed in school, work and life. NCLD carries out its mission by (1) providing essential information to parents, professionals, and individuals with LD; (2) promoting research and programs to foster effective learning; and (3) advocating for policies to protect and strengthen educational rights and opportunities. NCLD created Parent Center, a comprehensive resource section for parents of a child with LD or for parents who suspect their child may have a learning disability. The goal of the Parent Center is to empower parents with the information and tools they need to become informed and effective advocates for their children, both at home and at school.
The Center provides free newsletters and other publications to help you stay informed about developments in the field of LD, early learning and literacy, Response to Intervention practices, and related legislative issues. In addition, practical checklists and worksheets are available on-line.
