The Landmark School Outreach Program’s mission is to empower students with language-based learning disabilities (LBLD) by offering educators meaningful and effective professional development grounded in theory and practice.

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 school consultation, graduate courses and seminars, and online courses to help educators enhance their instruction of students with language-based learning disabilities (LBLD). We do not deliver pre-packaged programs—we partner with teachers to understand the nature of language-based learning disabilities 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.

Phonemic Awareness, Phonics, and Word Study

Phonemic awareness and phonics are two foundational prerequisite skills for reading development, but current research suggests that word study may be a more appropriate approach for older students.
