LD Resources Foundation, Inc. is a non-profit organization founded in 2001 under IRS section 501(c)(3). Our history of advocating for people with learning disabilities, enlightening multiple institutions in regards to compliance with American Disabilities Act, (ADA) federal rules, has brought awareness to K-12 schools, colleges, and universities, ensuring that assistive technology was made available for students. One initial focus was to support students transitioning from High School to College and so our Annual Awards Program was created. Multiple grants were secured to provide Assistive Technology for learning-disabled students from financially limited households. Our hope is that these awards will provide the necessary foundation by which these students can continue to build strong academic futures.
Our commitment to providing current access to knowledge and available resources, including Assistive Technology, for students with learning disabilities, specifically, Dyslexia and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) continuously evolves, alongside the rapid pace of innovative technologies.
The LD Resource Foundation has assembled several sources of information to educate people on the pros and cons of various assistive technology tools. These invaluable tools help those with learning disabilities master daily critical tasks. LDRFA has participated and presented at many professional conferences. In addition, we have created workshops for educators. We understand and celebrate that people with various print disabilities are successfully using assistive technology tools at home, in educational settings and in the workplace.
