Most educators are severely lacking updated training in today’s most prevalent Learning Disabilities & Other Health Impairments found in America’s schools.

Over 20% of the population identify as having a disability


63% of those millions of students with Learning Disabilities receive the majority of their education in General Education classrooms


75% of Educators feel under-prepared to teach diverse student populations
