Grants & Research

The Landmark College Institute for Research and Training (LCIRT) actively engages in discovery and applied research on issues related to diverse learners, including those with learning disabilities (such as dyslexia), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

Our research is constantly informed by new understanding from the educational, medical, and legal arenas. Our unique populations of students inform and guide our research interests. LCIRT works with many leading institutional and professional partners to discover and disseminate knowledge and evidence-based practices on learning diversity, through federal and foundational grants.

New Opportunity for Getting Involved in Research on LD, ADHD, and ASD

LCIRT and Academic Affairs at Landmark College have partnered to promote a new initiative: a Graduate Student Research Opportunity for graduate students interested in research in the field of LD, ADHD, and ASD. The goal of this program is to support and expand robust research endeavors that expand our knowledge in these areas.

This program connects graduate students from around the country interested in research on LD, ADHD, and ASD with Landmark faculty and LCIRT researchers on topics of mutual interest.
Graduate students learn about instructional pedagogies and practices unique to Landmark and participate in essential research activities.
An anticipated outcome is one or more peer-reviewed publications from the research study.

More details will be available soon. For initial inquiries, please contact Sarah Downing, Program Manager, at
