Graduation: The Journey to the Door of Opportunities and Adult Life

Life Development Institute (LDI) exists and has existed for the last 35 years as a beacon of hope, opportunity and community for teens and young adults who have learning disabilities, Asperger’s Syndrome, ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), and other social and learning differences.  

As such, graduation from LDI exists as a culmination of hard word, dedication, and the development of personal mastery over life skills that are necessary for successful adult daily living.  The journey to the point of graduation represents a commitment to each step, whether forwards or backward, combined with courageous self-expression for a future that students choose.  

Upon the hopes of LDI, graduation stands as a momentary pause and reflection on the relief, joy, and fulfillment of the dreams associated with these hopes.  To this point, the faculty and staff of Life Development Institute would like to honor and say congratulations to the two most recent graduates from LDI’s Academy of Lifelong Learning.

“You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition
. You can’t get there by bus, only by hard work and risk and by not
quite knowing what you’re doing, but what you’ll discover will be wonderful.
What you’ll discover will be yourself.” – Alan Alda
