LD OnLine seeks to help children and adults reach their full potential by providing accurate and up-to-date information and advice about learning disabilities and ADHD. The site features hundreds of helpful articles, multimedia, monthly columns by noted experts, first person essays, children’s writing and artwork, a comprehensive resource guide, very active forums, and a Yellow Pages referral directory of professionals, schools, and products.
More than 2.9 million school-age children in the United States approximately five percent of the student population are diagnosed with learning disabilities. Many more struggle in school but never receive a formal diagnosis. LD OnLine provides the parents and teachers of these children with accurate, authoritative information about learning disabilities so they can obtain the help they need.
LD OnLine also serves adolescents and adults with learning disabilities. The site offers information and resources on the transitions from school to college and from school to the workplace, and on the issues faced by adults with learning disabilities.
