When college students share the up and downs of life with an LD, they inspire us all!

Back in April 2013, the Landmark College community overwhelmingly came together to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the recognition that we all learn differently. Faculty member Jim Baucom wrote a column for the Washington Post about the first Congressional legislation to provide appropriate education for students with learning differences, and Landmark College students celebrated their successful learning strategies. This inspiring gathering is sure to become an annual event at Landmark College!

Through this video, our students share with the world their perspectives on learning differences. From the challenges to the perks, what better way to see the value of your own education than through the eyes of someone who learns things differently than you?

Landmark College was the first institution of higher learning to pioneer college-level studies for students with dyslexia. Today Landmark College, offering two and four-year degree options, a graduate level certificate in universal design with technology integration, and summer programs for students who learn differently, is a global leader in integrated teaching methods for students with dyslexia and other learning disabilities, ADHD, and ASD. Students, faculty, and other professionals from all over the world are drawn to Landmark College for its innovative educational model—designed through research and practice to help all students who learn differently become confident, self-empowered, and independently successful learners.
