The name of the organization changed to Connecticut Association for Children with Perceptual Learning Disabilities(CACPLD)

The state of Connecticut passed a major set of laws recognizing the special education needs of handicapped children, including those with specific learning disabilities. Then in 1975, Congress passed the Education for All Handicapped Children Act. In response, the organization began an informal Parent Assistance PA program, at no costs to participants, to help them understand the impact of these important laws.
