About the LD Professional Certificate Courses

Our Professional Certificate courses focus on executive function skills training to improve academic success for students who learn differently. The program uniquely integrates LCIRT’s 30+ years of research with evidence-based practices, classroom strategies, and technologies to support learning. Courses offer the convenience of online learning as well as the opportunity to interact with an engaged group of education professionals through synchronous (live video) and asynchronous discussions.

Earn your certificate with the full series, or take individual graduate courses

 

You can enroll in individual three credit courses or complete all five courses to earn a Certificate in Learning Differences (LD) and Neurodiversity, with a specialization in Executive Function, from Landmark College. With the exception of the Capstone, each course can be taken individually and in any order.

I really like the balance of theory and practice. It helps me immensely to have the research to refer to when presenting a strategy, but I also appreciate that it’s always very clear why we delve into particular theories.”
