Connect with us

Thank you for connecting to LD resources foundation www.ldrfa.org blog. 

 The foundation in 2001 with the goal of giving financially needy college students with LD/ADHD the tools to successfully complete their college education. We provide AT scholarships to those who cannot afford to purchase these technologies on their own.

           You know, as a professional working with this population, more and more students with learning disabilities are graduating from high school and going to college to continue their education. However this population faces many challenges to achieve their dreams of obtaining a diploma.

           The LD Resources Foundation, Inc. is the only grassroots, donor based foundation in the United States to give Assistive Technology tools DIRECTLY to students not only to use for their college studies, but to use in their careers.

This fiscal year was our main focus was to award assistive technology to the 24 students who financially limited.

In the fall we completed our pilot program at Churchill School and awarded technology tools to several of their graduating seniors.  Those students are now using their awards in their first year in college. I continue to provide consulting and technical assistance to the school.
We have expanded outreached to colleges and universities in New York City and around the country and we hope to keep expand our outreach with collaboration with The National Center for Learning Disability.

Please visit  http://www.ldrfa.org/assistive-list.html for our latest list of assistive technology review
The LDRFA.org Resource Center has assembled several sources of information to educate people on the pros and cons of different assistive technology tools. These tools are invaluable, because they assist people with learning disabilities master such important tasks in college as studying for exams, completing reading assignments, taking notes in classes and writing research papers.  People with various disabilities are using assistive technology tools at work,  college, and at home.

We look forward to hearing from you.
Have a Happy 4th of July,

Board of LD Resources Foundation, Inc.
