To LDAV members:
It is with considerable sadness that the LDAV Board has voted to formally dissolve LDAV as an organization in the State of Virginia as an affiliate of the Learning Disabilities Association of America. Recognizing that the time has come, we also look back and acknowledge the enormous influence LDAV has had in Virginia since it was organized in about 1972. Today we are very proud to have been part of the effort to ensure the services provided to Virginias parents, students, and young adults through our advocacy. We are very proud to have been a part of this important effort through the years.
We are submitting all LDAV documents to the Virginia State Library, where they will be kept in recognition of LDAVs role in Virginia history. If you have any historical LDAV documents, please send them to:
Dr. Jean Lokerson, Ph.D.
1500 Westbrook Court, Apt. 4123
Richmond, VA 23227-3375
e-m: jlokerso-at-vcu.edu (note there is no "n" in the email address)
Thank you for your support. We hope you will continue to be an informed advocate in the LD community and an involved member through the national LDA organization in Pittsburgh and the annual LDA Conferences.
The LDAV website will be closed by May 31, 2015.
Best wishes, we hope to see each of you at the 2016 LDA Convention in sunny Florida!
The LDAV Board, past and present
