The Los Angeles Learning Disabilities Association was founded in 1960 as the California Association for Neurologically Handicapped Children by a group of concerned parents and professionals. In 1974, CANHC affiliated with the national organization, Association for Children and Adults with Learning Disabilities (ACLD), and eventually became CANHC-ACLD, then ACLD of California. In 1989 the name of the organization \was changed to the Los Angeles Learning Disabilities Association (LALDA) to be more easily found by parents, adults with learning disabilities, and professionals in need of their services. LALDA became an independent entity in 2017
