As our son entered LDI, it was evident that the program staff and administrators understood his challenges. He now has a job with benefits, manages his own complex medical needs, is responsible for maintaining his car and insurance and paying most of his living expenses.

LDI Parent

LDI offered our adult daughter the potential to reach her personal goal: to live independently by the age of 26. Our daughter is intelligent, kind, and focused. LDI has given her the space, respect, tools, support, and structure to succeed in her LDI classes, her service-learning work, and her academic studies at the community college.

LDI provided support and was truly a “life development” resource for our son.  Now 20 years later, he is living independently and holding down a job. LDI has been a “game changer” for our son and we would recommend it highly to parents whose children need a special environment.
