History of LDA
According to the Learning Disabilities Association of America’s website, October was originally designated in the United States as LD Month in 1985 through a proclamation by President Ronald Reagan. Organizations in the United States use this month to inform the public about learning disabilities through events and proclamations. LD Awareness Month is celebrated in many states, often coordinated through each state’s Learning Disabilities Association of America (LDA)
Raising awareness among educators, parents, and the general public can help us create a world where children with learning disabilities like dyslexia and attention issues like ADHD are accepted, understood, and able to thrive.
