Katie Cyphers named to the board of directors for the Learning Disabilities Association of America

Camp Academia, Inc.'s Katie Cyphers has been named to the board of directors of the Learning Disabilities Association of America.


Katie Cyphers of LaGrange, Georgia was recently named to the board of directors for the Learning Disabilities Association of America (LDA) for the 2011-2014 term.  Cyphers 26, the youngest person ever to be named to the prestigious board, is a graduate of the University of Tennessee and holds  Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees in Special Education.

“LDA is the premier organization in the U.S. for individuals concerned about learning disabilities,” said Cyphers.  “I love that LDA has followed me throughout my career; it isn’t just for teachers or parents. As a student, I found opportunities to connect with wonderful mentors across the nation, including the authors of my textbooks. When I became a new teacher, I found myself connecting with others who taught me valuable teaching strategies. Now as a young professional, LDA has given me the opportunity to advocate on a national level for students with learning disabilities and has provided me with the latest research. At the most recent conference, I was able to meet Dr. Janet Lerner and Dr. Larry Silver, two of the most well-known professionals in the field.”

Cyphers, who works as the Director of School Systems and Special Projects for Camp Academia Inc., Home of Brain Jogging, at 1507 Vernon Road, LaGrange, Georgia, is responsible for implementing the ground-breaking, patented computer software, known as Brainjogging for students with learning disabilities, including dyslexia, language processing disorders, attention deficit disorder,  autism,  and developmental delays.  Cyphers  implemented Brainjogging in a Senior Adult Pilot Program in local retirement communities to improve short-term memory, processing speed, and retrieval.  Camp Academia also has an office in Columbus at 6501 Veterans’ Parkway.

Cyphers is passionate about her cause, “LDA is more than just an organization; it is a family that will support me for the rest of my career. Together, we will create opportunities for success for all individuals affected by learning disabilities and seek to reduce the incidence of learning disabilities in future generations.”
