As part of our commitment to expanding awareness of dyslexia and learning differences, Carroll School is proud to be a founding school of a new education organization focused on collaborating and advocating for students with learning differences. The Association of LD Schools (ALDS) is a new non-profit, private school organization including over 50 founding schools across the country and in Canada that serve students with learning differences, such as dyslexia, dyscalculia, dysgraphia, and executive dysfunction.
“Carroll’s longstanding partnerships with neuroscientists, LD associations, and other LD schools has had a transformative impact on the work we do at Carroll School,” said Renée Greenfield, Head of School. “Being a founding member of ALDS will launch our collective efforts and collaboration with school leaders, experts, and advocates dedicated to sharing best practices for empowering students with learning differences.”
“At ALDS, our goal is clear: to foster an inclusive and empowering environment where schools dedicated to supporting students with learning differences can come together, collaborate, and flourish,” said Cheryl Cook, who recently served as the academic dean at Lawrence School in Ohio and is serving as the Association’s founding Executive Director. “My goal for ALDS is to figure out how we can help LD school leaders and educators connect with each other about their work and efforts to support learners. We are stronger together.”
As a founding school, Carroll School looks forward to helping shape the future of the association alongside the ALDS board members.
