June LCIRT News

Awareness and understanding of learning differences vary from country to country as from school to school. This month we highlight one of our certificate graduates in her effort to bring a neurodiversity conference and resource website to her country, Indonesia. Our own conference is also coming up: Don't miss the virtual Landmark College Summer Institute on Friday, June 18 with a focus on Mental Health, Wellness and Learning Differences. Registration is still open, and we'd welcome you. Finally, for a bit of end-of-school-year reading, we bring you information from around the education world in LCIRT Recommends.
