LD Pride Day: Celebrating 50 Years of History, Struggles and Opportunities!

Apr 22

You are invited to join as we host events to honor the history of Learning Disabilities and the progress made during the past fifty years.

In this Landmark College celebration, “we won’t parse labels, or any other words for that matter.  But instead, we will recognize the actions taken by a small group of concerned parents gathered in Chicago a half century ago who only wanted their children to receive a better education. Today, we call that advocacy and it’s worth celebrating.” - Jim Baucom

On April 22, Landmark College will host events to honor the history of Learning Disabilities and the progress made during the past fifty years including:
