Life Development Institute (LDI) provides education and successful transition to adulthood for adolescents and young adults who have learning disabilities (LD), non-verbal learning disabilities (NLD), Asperger’s syndrome, ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), and other social and learning differences.  As part of the mission and vision of LDI, great emphasis is placed upon offering the community valuable information through monthly Speaker Series events and bi-monthly Webinars.  It is the hope that the information shared during these sessions will enable parents, family members, students, and other professionals to continue their lifelong learning and master skills necessary to succeed in life.  

Veronica Lieb CrawfordAs such, on May 16, 2017, LDI’s President Veronica Crawford presented a webinar on resilience that demonstrated how even through some of the most extreme obstacles in life, we can find our way, if we are shown how to let go of being a victim and allowed to take control of our lives through rebuilding our strengths.  Through this webinar, Veronica offers insight through a motivational experience as well as a learning experience of seeing what it is like to become more resilient through the process of reframing one’s thinking.  In fact, specific examples and a step-by-step process are provided to assist participants with some of the skills to get started for themselves or those they love.  Guidance is offered on finding professionals to help in working with them.
