Residential special education program Life Development Institute selected as 2010-2011 NASET School of Excellence

The Institute is dedicated to providing its students an abilities-based program offering opportunities to challenge themselves to learn, take healthy risks, and grow emotionally, functionally, and professionally

Residential special education program Life Development Institute has been selected as a 2010-2011 NASET School of Excellence. Only one other Arizona special education program has received this distinction.

Selection as a NASET School of Excellence is the highest level of recognition a private special education school can achieve through NASET. This honor is presented to private special education schools that meet rigorous professional criteria and have demonstrated truly exceptional dedication, commitment and achievement in the field of special education.

Rob Crawford, CEO of Life Development Institute, said "Our staff, students, and family made this award possible for LDI. We have a great team and the level of program quality is the best it has ever been for our students."

Life Development Institute is a residential special education program that serves young men and women between the ages of 18-30 who have cognitive, emotional, or neurological conditions such as learning disabilities, ADHD, Asperger’s Syndrome, NLD, depression, anxiety and other related disorders.

“The Institute is dedicated to providing its students an abilities-based program offering opportunities to challenge themselves to learn, take healthy risks, and grow emotionally, functionally, and professionally,” said Crawford.

Since 1982, Life Development Institute staff and its administrators are devoted to actively work with and support parents who are eager for a place where their special needs adult children can thrive and succeed. Families look to LDI for hope and support, as there are few other viable resources. LDI strives to ease the difficult transition for the parent from being their child's advocate to being a parent who can empower their adult children to become more independent.
