The Liaison Committee represents the Council for Learning Disabilities (CLD) in advocacy efforts for students with learning disabilities, provides updates from their work with the Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities (CCD), and participates in the National Joint Committee on Learning Disabilities (NJCLD) writing papers in collaboration with other organizations. Members of CLD are often called upon to take action in alerting their elected officials about our views toward pending legislation. Information regarding our participation in all of these efforts and others can be found on the Advocacy, CCD, NJCLD pages.


An update on the Liaison Committee’s work is provided at each of the CLD national conferences, and a committee meeting is held that is open to all attendees. In addition, members are encouraged to act throughout the year on various issues.
