Learning Disabilities Association of America
The LDA’s Healthy Children Project is dedicated to reducing the effects of environmental contaminants on brain development, especially in children. A growing body of research indicates that many learning and behavior problems are linked to toxic chemicals which are widespread in the environment and products, and to which we are exposed on a daily basis.
The Learning Disabilities Association created the Healthy Children Project to:
- Raise awareness of environmental factors, particularly toxic chemicals, that can harm brain development, contributing to learning disabilities and behavior disorders,
- Prevent toxic chemical exposures, especially among pregnant women and children,
- Build a nationwide network of LDA members working to protect children’s health and reduce the incidence of learning disabilities in future generations. LEARN MORE HERE…
