The Learning Disabilities Association of Maine is the Maine state affiliate of LDAA serving children and adults with specific learning disabilities, their families, professionals, and community members since 1980.
In March of 1963, parents of children with learning disabilities from local support groups developed a national organization which was incorporated in 1964 as the Association for Children with Learning Disabilities (ACLD). From those beginnings, the Learning Disabilities Association of America (LDAA) has grown to serve tens of thousands of members with learning disabilities, their families and the professionals who work with them.
As the Maine affiliate of LDAA, the Learning Disabilities Association of Maine (LDA-ME) is the only nonprofit family organization whose mission is to provide support, education, and advocacy statewide to individuals with learning disabilities and co-existing disorders. Our Board of Directors and committee members are composed of individuals with learning disabilities, their parents, and concerned professionals.
Our services are free to youth with learning disabilities and their families thanks in part to funding provided by the Maine Department of Special Education.
Everyone in Maine is affected by Specific Learning Disabilities! Your LDA-ME membership will help support us in our work to create opportunities for success for individuals with specific learning disabilities and their families.
