Thank you for visiting our blog! As professional psychologists and educational specialists, we are dedicated to improving the lives of students with learning differences (LD). We are excited to offer a forum where we can share our knowledge, our reflections, and provide information about our students’ challenges and achievements. While many of our examples emanate from the Institute for Learning and Development (ILD), we will also incorporate information from our sister not-for-profit educational research organization, ResearchILD. Our two organizations provide an environment for a dynamic interchange of theory and research that interlinks with evidence-based best practices.
As Director of Education at ILD, and Co-Founder of both ILD and ResearchILD, I welcome you to our blog space, and hope you will join us in fulfilling ILD and ResearchILD’s common mission – to transform the lives of children with learning and attention differences and assist them in finding their unique pathways to success. We will discuss ways in which “learning differences can become learning opportunities” by creating optimal learning environments that enhance self-confidence and self-esteem.
We hope you will regularly check out our blog to stay updated on the latest trends in the LD community!
