Environmental Toxins: Children

Healthy Children Project

Format: Project

In 2002, the Learning Disabilities Association of America created the Healthy Children Project to:

  • Raise awareness of environmental factors, particularly toxic chemicals, that can harm brain development, contributing to learning disabilities and behavior disorders.
  • Promote policies and practices to prevent toxic chemical exposures, especially among pregnant women and children.
  • Build a nationwide network of LDA members working to protect children’s health and reduce toxic exposures that may lead to learning disabilities in current and future generations.
