Learning Disabilities Worldwide logo Posted by Teresa Citro, CEO Learning Disabilities Worldwide (LDW) The team at ReadSpeaker kindly offered me to present what we do at LDW. Learning Disabilities Worldwide, established in 1965, is an international professional organization dedicated to improving the educational, professional, and personal outcomes for individuals with learning disabilities (LD) and other related disorders. Our members include world-renowned experts and scholars, preservice teachers, general education teachers, special education teachers, paraprofessionals, team coaches, clinicians, consultants, administrators, medical and mental health professionals, individuals with learning disabilities, and their parents and families. Learning Disabilities Worldwide publishes two peer-reviewed, scientifically-based journals that are multidisciplinary in nature focusing on empirical studies, reviews of the literature, policy issues, and advocacy relevant to the field of learning disabilities. We continue to engage in the professional development and dissemination of scholarly works and evidence-based practices to promote and enhance the success of all individuals with learning disabilities. We provide a unique opportunity for academic scholars, both in the United States and abroad, to exchange ideas and research opportunities to better the quality of life for individuals with learning disabilities around the world. We also work to enhance the lives of individuals with learning disabilities and their families through its publications, website, and conferences. We are always looking for new and useful ways to make our online content as easy to access as possible and that is how we found ReadSpeaker’s text to speech online service. Our website, www.ldworldwide.org, uses ReadSpeaker Embedded Highlighting in English and 10 additional languages as well as ReadSpeaker docReader, so that our users may access our web pages and online documents through visual and auditory means. By providing this service, our website becomes more accessible and usable to those with disabilities. Through this service, ReadSpeaker helps Learning Disabilities Worldwide improve the lives of individuals with learning disabilities, their families, and the professionals in their lives.
