Learning Disabilities Association of New York City
750,000 older teens, young adults and adults in New York City struggle daily with moderate to severe learning disabilities. Although entitled to special services when they are in school, New Yorkers with learning disabilities lose these services when they leave school, so they often struggle to advance in life. By assisting with life, education and job readiness, LDANYC helps these New Yorkers grow from learning challenged to learning enabled.
