LCIRT was established in 2001 to pioneer LD research, discover innovative strategies and practices, and improve teaching and learning outcomes for students with learning disabilities (like dyslexia), ADHD, and autism spectrum disorder (ASD), and educators in high school and college settings.
Currently, the Institute staff shares this information with education professionals through webinars, online certificate courses, on-site workshops, and the signature Summer and Winter Institutes for Educators, among other activities.
"Landmark is on the cutting edge of movements and practices that are shaping LD education today. Our efforts identify, validate, and disseminate these practices to students, educators, and professionals serving those with diverse learning needs – both in and out of the classroom." -- Manju Banerjee, Ph.D., Vice President for Educational Research and Innovation
Fully integrated within the College, LCIRT is instrumental in promoting and leveraging the knowledge and expertise of Landmark College's faculty and staff. The Virtual Reality lab also makes it one of the most popular environments for student research.
