Since 1969, LDA of Michigan has been an affiliate of LDA of America and provided support to people with learning disabilities, their parents, teachers and other professionals with cutting edge information on learning disabilities, practical solutions, and a comprehensive network of resources. These services make LDA, and LDA of MI, the leading resources for information on learning disabilities.
