Mission Statement: The Learning Disabilities Association of Arkansas is a non-profit, volunteer organization of individuals, professionals and parents of children with learning disabilities. We are dedicated to defining and empowering individuals affected by learning disabilities through education, advocacy and legislation.
Overview: The Learning Disabilities Association of Arkansas (LDAA) is a non-profit, volunteer organization for parents and professionals devoted to defining and pursuing solutions to the broad spectrum of learning disorders. LDAA is a state affiliate of the Learning Disabilities Association of America and was chartered in 1963. Our members include educators, therapists, other professionals and parents who care for Arkansans with disabilities.
LDAA provides area schools, churches and other organizations with our educational learning disability simulation workshops, where we engage participants in activities designed to replicate experiences from a disabled individual’s perspective.
Monthly UPHOLD meetings (Understanding that People Have Options for Learning Disabilities) are free and open to anyone associated with children who have learning disabilities. UPHOLD meetings occur every third Tuesday at 7 p.m. on the Little Rock Christian Academy campus (19010 Highway 10, Little Rock). Teachers who attend UPHOLD meetings may receive 1.5 hours of continuing education units at each meeting.
LDAA hosts an annual conference focused on the latest treatment and teaching strategies for children with learning disabilities and also offers a higher education scholarship for Arkansas residents who are ineligible for Social Security disability funding or Supplemental Security Income.
