What We Do
Young Adult Leadership
Young adults with learning and attention issues are the future of our movement. NCLD works to empower, engage, and support them to be advocates and leaders for students across the country.
Our efforts ensure that young adults with learning disabilities and attention issues have a chance at a successful and rewarding career and can fulfill their lifelong education goals.

Join the Leadership Council
NCLD wants to inspire a new generation of young leaders in the disability rights movement. If you’re between the ages of 18 and 26, have a learning disability or attention issue, and want to use your voice to improve the lives of the 1 in 5, sign up below to receive information about the Young Adult Leadership Council. Or recommend a young adult you know who is passionate about self-advocacy and helping others.
Read Our Blog: Engaged & Empowered
Hear directly from young adults with learning and attention issues in our blog, Engaged & Empowered. They describe their experiences transitioning from high school to college, the workplace, and life; their pathways to self-advocacy and empowerment; and their challenges securing support and accommodations that will ensure their success.
Tell Congress: Pass the RISE Act
We need your help! Ask your member of Congress to support students with learning and attention issues.
Thanks to support from generous partners like you, we are able to create programs and resources to support the 1 in 5 individuals with learning and attention issues nationwide.
