Teaching LD is a service of the Division for Learning Disabilities (DLD) of the Council for Exceptional Children.  Visit the site at www.teachingld.org.

DLD is the largest professional organization focused on Learning Disabilities.

“Teaching LD News” is their free online newsletter, available to non-members.

The purpose of  Teaching LD is to provide trustworthy and up-to-date resources about teaching students with Learning Disabilities. 

Member dues at the “Professional” level are between $100-$200 a year, depending on the state you live in.  There is an “Associate” category at $89 (family and paraprofessionals), as well as lower fees for students and retired people.

Membership entitles you to certain benefits, such as its many publications, including the quarterly journal “Learning Disabilities Research and Practice,” as well as reduced rates for conferences.  

Members can take advantage of multimedia teaching tutorials designed by leading experts in the field of Learning Disabilities; dialogues with leading researchers; the “hotsheets” series which offers quick summaries of effective practices for (for example) homework and phonological awareness; and the full texts of all DLD publications.

Visit the site; even if you don’t become a member, the free newsletter is a source of useful information.
