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 and online workshops, and the signature Summer Institute for educators, among other activities.
Landmark College 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 Neurocognitive Lab, which includes virtual reality (VR) equipment, makes LCIRT a popular environment for student research.
LCIRT’s mission is to expand neurodiversity-based research and leverage innovative practices to improve educational and career outcomes for neurodivergent individuals. LCIRT fulfills this mission and the broader mission of Landmark College by engaging in research and disseminating emerging knowledge, perspectives, and practices in the field of learning differences.
We envision a future in which education, the workplace, and society are affirming and equitable for all neurodivergent individuals. LCIRT seeks to realize this vision by supporting research and through information dissemination, in order to optimize learning and career opportunities as well as outcomes for neurodivergent individuals.
