Council For Learning Disabilities
The Council for Learning Disabilities (CLD) is an international organization that promotes evidence-based teaching, collaboration, research, leadership, and advocacy. CLD is comprised of professionals who represent diverse disciplines and are committed to enhancing the education and quality of life for individuals with learning disabilities and others who experience challenges in learning.

LEGISLATIVE ALERTS: Funding for Special Education and the Reauthorization of ESEA have been given attention by both houses of Congress this summer. Things move quickly at times, so the three chairs of the Education Task Force of the Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities (CCD) send letters representing all of the task force members. The content of their letters follow the Principles for ESEA Reauthorization approved by the CCD membership. Please go to our legislative page to see copies of these letters as well as those regarding proposed bills to reauthorize ESEA. Contact your members of Congress and urge them to support a bill that will include high expectations and accountability for students with learning disabilities.
