Helping Hand - July 11 2014 full interview with LDAHawaii

Helping Hand is a weekly feature on HPR each Friday afternoon at 5:30 on HPR1 stations statewide and online here, putting the spotlight on an organization or event that offers assistance to the disabled and other folks in need with All Things Considered host Dave Lawrence. This week we’re learning about Learning Disabilities Association of Hawai‘i, a non-profit founded in 1968 by parents of children with disabilities.

According to their website, their mission is to enhance educational, work and life opportunities for children and youth with or at risk of disabilities, by empowering them and their families through screening, identification, information, training and mentoring, and by public outreach and advocacy. We learn more with our special guest today, Executive Director of Learning Disabilities Association of Hawai‘i, Michael Moore.
