About Us

We are a group of parents and professionals who are passionate about helping our children with learning disabilities in order to increase academic success and personal success.

We work together to create a hub for organizations who are committed to changing the world for ALL children who suffers with a learning disability in and around the Greater Baton Rouge Area.

We believe that it is important to collaborate with organizations from around our parish in the Greater Baton Rouge Community to work to help children with learning disabilities create a productive educational environment.

Our LD (Learning Disabled) children deserve the best our community has to offer and this coalition works to bring together parents and professionals equipped to improve education for our kids with learning disabilities.

We believe that through professional development, networking and advocacy, this coalition can give parents and professionals the tools they need to move LD (Learning Disabled) kids through school successfully and into their career.

Mission

Our Mission is to educate, support, and facilitate information between parents, teachers, and helping professionals about the signs, symptoms, treatment, and remediation resources available for dyslexia, ADD/ADHD, autism, and the mental health issues that often co-exist with these conditions in the Greater Baton Rouge Area.

Our Vision is to create a centralized means of sharing information and support for parents of children and for adults with learning disabilities, mental health services for children and adolescents, helping professionals, and educators in the Greater Baton Rouge Area.
