The Learning Difficulties Australia Bulletin is a magazine-style publication in the area of learning difficulties for members of LDA. This publication contains a variety of information including short articles, reports, LDA updates, and book reviews. It aims to provide a forum in which researchers can disseminate accessible information to a wide audience of educational professionals, and to provide a venue where teachers and clinicians at the chalkface can report on the implementation of evidence-based teaching practices.
Dr Roslyn Neilson is the current editor of the LDA Bulletin. Ros has a wealth of experience and knowledge to contribute to the LDA Bulletin, with a background in both speech pathology and psychology, and a wide knowledge of the literature relating to language development, literacy and learning difficulties. She had been on the editorial team from 2016, and she took on the Editor role from Issue 1 of 2020. The Bulletin co-editors were Dr Molly de Lemos and Professor Tom Nicholson for the three 2020 and 2021 issues.
September 2021 saw the welcome addition of Olivia Connelly and Jan Roberts to the team. LDA would welcome new members to the Bulletin committee – people who can contribute ideas and suggestions to our team. We also need kindred spirits who enjoy copy-editing. You don’t have to be an LDA member to join us. Please contact Ros Neilson firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in finding out more about this opportunity.
The Bulletin editorial team welcomes contributions from members of LDA for inclusion in the Bulletin, as well as comments, suggestions and ideas as to what they would like to see published. Feel free to contact the team directly: email@example.com .
