Center for Development and Learning
Founded in 1992, the Center for Development and Learning (CDL) is a results-driven 501(c)(3) organization. CDL’s mission is to improve the life chances of all children, especially those at high risk, by increasing school success. Our goal is to help all children learn to higher levels and apply their knowledge toward good ends. We believe that all children, regardless of how they look, where they come from, or how they learn, can and will achieve school success when provided with highly effective teachers and positive, supportive learning environments.
CDL’s programs and services fall into three silos: (1) evidence-based professional development for teachers, principals, related specialists, and parents; (2) psychoeducational and neurodevelopmental evaluations for struggling students; and (3) public engagement of stakeholders at all levels.
CDL has special expertise in the areas of learning differences, research-based teaching strategies, and building the capacity of teachers. We tackle real-time issues such as ways to remediate struggling readers, differentiate instruction for diverse learners, and build and sustain collective capacity.
