Research and Scholarship

The Research and Scholarship group provides support, guidance and opportunity to those wishing to carry out research and scholarship activities commensurate with the broader aims of ALDinHE. Members support the dissemination of LD research, review research funding bids, act as a guide for members’ research projects and monitor external oportunities for funding relevant to the LD community.
