Welcome to CCLD!
The Colorado Council for Learning Disabilities (CCLD) is affiliated with
The Council for Learning Disabilities (CLD). Our Web site provides resources to support a
collaborative effort between general education, special education, families and related
professionals. We believe all students can engage in higher-level learning through the implementation of evidenced-based instructional practices.
The Council for Learning Disabilities (CLD), an international organization composed of professionals who represent diverse disciplines, is committed to enhancing the education and quality of life for individuals with learning disabilities across the life span. CLD accomplishes this by promoting and disseminating evidence-based research and practices related to the education of individuals with learning disabilities. In addition, CLD fosters (a) collaboration among professionals; (b) development of leaders in the field; and (c) advocacy for policies that support individuals with learning disabilities at local, state, and national levels.
What does CCLD do in Colorado?
CCLD plays an important part in the support, design, and development of several state-wide professional-development opportunities. Members can access current research and evidenced-based instructional practices through CLD journals, access scholarship funds, and be recognized for outstanding contributions to the field of learning disabilities through the state and national awards program.
