The critical transition after high school can be a daunting experience for many young adults with learning and attention issues. Many find themselves asking where they should go to college, what career path they should choose, or wonder how to find support and resources.

NCLD hopes to empower young adults with learning and attention issues through our initiatives, including an online community, leadership opportunities, and research. If you are interested in building your leadership skills, taking action to protect the rights of students across the country, using your voice to inspire others, or connecting with other young adults, check out our initiatives below.
