Teens – Youth Learn through Leading

Teen Boys Comparing Homework

In partnership with health care and education systems, LDAM supports and serves school age children, parents and adults 18 and over.

Priority one is to connect youth ages 12 through 18 challenged by regular adolescent emotional turbulence as well as physical and mental changes. Teens with learning disabilities have an even tougher time fitting in and getting by, let alone trying to develop and excel at their unique strengths. 

Supporting parents and families who act as their child’s or teen’s advocate and case manager, LDAM delivers innovative programs to strengthen youth leadership skills that connect, facilitate participation and grow success at home, in school and in communities.
