Learning Disabilities (LD)


Addressing One of Today’s Most Prevalent Issues with Data-Based Individualization and Research-Based Interventions

SESI School1_058With LDs affecting as many as 41% of all students receiving special education in the U.S. today, there’s a tremendous need to properly educate these children in ways that address their cognitive difficulties and recognize their learning differences.
