Advocating for your Child and Finding Resources in your Area

On Wednesdsay, we talked about parent advocacy and finding online and local LD resources. Our guest was Lyn Pollard, a parent advocate from Texas who is also NCLD's Parent Advocacy Manager. Here are highlights of what Lyn and audience had to say and resources they shared.

Want to join the conversation next week? Every Wednesday at 12 pm ET, NCLD hosts a discussion on Twitter called #LDchat. People from all over the country and around the world log on each week to discuss a new topic, and you can, too! Here’s how:


  • Step 1: Go to tweetchat.com or tchat.io.
  • Step 2: Type in #LDchat.
  • Step 3: Follow the conversation, and chime in when you’ve got something to say—add #LDchat to the end of your responses so they can be included in the chat.

**Tip**We follow the chat by logging in to tweetchat.com or tchat.io and entering #LDchat. A box appears that displays only the tweets from the chat. When you tweet, #LDchat is automatically added to the end of your message so your thoughts can be included in the chat.
