The mission of Life Development Institute is to provide non-traditional, college-capable students a practical and inclusive bridge to improve college/career readiness and success, build cultural competence and develop personal leadership skills.
The compelling drive to find one’s own way in the world is no less strong in those with learning and neurodiversity issues than in any other young adult. Few other “journeys” are more important, or more difficult than those of seeking successful adulthood. For many, the need to prove themselves remains strong throughout life. The LDI is a beacon of hope for older adolescents and adults who struggle with learning disabilities, attention deficit disorders, Autism spectrum disorders and other related conditions.
Together with a competent and dedicated staff of caring professionals, the program strives to achieve its Mission. The LDI staff and its administrators are devoted to actively work with and support parents who are eager for a place where their adult-child can thrive and succeed. Families look to LDI for hope and support, as seemingly there are few other viable resources for their children. LDI strives to ease the difficult transition for the parent from being their adult child’s advocate to being a parent who can empower their offspring to become more independent.
