LD Advocates Guide

Advocacy for Children - Education AdvocatesWhether you are a parent of a child with LD, an adult with LD, an educator, or an LD professional, there’s a place for you in the world of LD advocacy. Now more than ever, it is imperative that the voices of children and adults with learning disabilities are heard in Washington, D.C. and at the state and local level.

NCLD’s LD Advocates Guide offers invaluable information and step-by-step guidance for both first-time and experienced advocates. Use this guide to:

  • Understand which federal policies and laws have shaped the rights of individuals with LD.
  • Learn how you can work with policymakers to protect those rights.
  • Become skilled at how to work with the media to increase awareness of the realities and the challenges of those faced with LD.
  • Find out what resources are available to you.

Since launching our public policy program in 1990, with the opening of our Washington, D.C. office, NCLD has mobilized tens of thousands of parents, teachers, and other advocates to speak in a single, concerted voice to Congress and the media.

Today, we invite you to become an LD advocate and work with us to create better outcomes for all individuals with learning disabilities.
