The Landmark School Outreach Program’s mission is to empower students with language-based learning disabilities by offering their teachers an exemplary program of applied research and professional development.

Our strategies help educators broaden their thinking about how to teach students with language-based learning disabilities, which fall under the broader category of specific learning disabilities (SLD). We provide the bridge that links teachers with the evidence-based practices that improve student outcomes.

We offer consulting, graduate courses and seminars, and online courses to help educators enhance their instruction of students with language-based learning disabilities (LBLD). We don’t deliver pre-packaged programs—we challenge teachers to understand the nature of language-based learning difficulties and find ways to make evidence-based practices work in their own classrooms.

LBLD Professional Development Strands:

  • Language-Based Instruction
  • Assessment
  • Expressive & Receptive Language
  • Reading
  • Executive Function & Study Skills
  • Writing
  • Mathematics
  • Technology

Founded in 1971, Landmark School is recognized internationally as a leader in the field of language-based learning disabilities. A coeducational boarding and day school for elementary, middle, and high school students, Landmark individualizes instruction for each student and emphasizes the development of language and learning skills within a highly structured living and learning environment.
