Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We aim to be the premier professional development resource in the Northeast empowering learning specialists in supporting all learners.

We offer professional development and networking opportunities, which include, conferences with national speakers, networking, active member discussion pages, monthly newsletters, and peer reviewed professional development resources for providing support for students with learning disabilities.

We bring together learning specialists, often isolated in their schools, to share information, mentoring, cutting edge resources, and connections with national speakers on the forefront of research into providing efficacious support for children with learning disabilities.

We have provided professional development opportunities and networking for learning specialists in independent schools for over 20 years. In the spring of 2019 we celebrated our 20th anniversary with a two day conference and gala honoring our members and a new generation of learning specialists! During COVID we pivoted to provide online and in person learning and networking opportunities so that our members could continue to achieve professional growth.
