The Learning Disabilities Association of Wisconsin (LDAWI) is a non-profit, 501(c)3, grassroots organization affiliated with the Learning Disabilities Association of America.
Our vision is to accept and support individuals with learning disabilities, their families and the professionals who serve them.
We believe “it takes a group effort to have a voice loud enough to make a difference.”
LDA of Wisconsin’s Mission
The mission of the Learning Disabilities Association of Wisconsin is to inform, to educate and to collaborate.
What LDA Does To Accomplish Its Mission
We believe that the number of individuals affected by learning disabilities can be reduced with an effective, comprehensive prevention plan. We encourage research that seeks to identify the causes of learning disabilities and disseminate research findings which could lead to the reduction of the incidence of learning disabilities.
Foster Research in Best Practices
We encourage ongoing research efforts into recognition, assessment and intervention strategies throughout the lifespan. We monitor and disseminate these research findings.
Too many people go through life unidentified. We advocate for early identification, which increases the possibility of successful intervention. We will continue to advocate for access to identification throughout the lifespan.
We strongly support best practice interventions for individuals with learning disabilities throughout the lifespan.
We are committed to advocating for and protecting the rights of all individuals with learning disabilities. This includes legislative advocacy for laws to improve and preserve the rights of all individuals as well as individual advocacy.
