The Rankin Institute was created in 2004 as the outreach component of The Fletcher School to provide education and resources to teachers, professionals, and parents beyond those directly involved with the academic programs at Fletcher. The Institute strives to improve the quality of services and educational experiences of students with learning disabilities and attention deficits by training teachers and other professionals in the latest methodology and practices in the field of exceptional children. It supports families by providing education and practical techniques for understanding and parenting their LD children. In a typical year, The Rankin Institute offers 75 seminars to parents and professionals. It is regarded as a valuable resource by many in the community. With over 3,000 people educated by The Rankin Institute, the number of struggling children who are being helped is increasing exponentially.
We invite you to explore the seminars and workshops currently offered by The Rankin Institute. Community Programs are designed for parents, professionals, and community members interested in improving the lives and services offered to students with learning disabilities and ADHD. The Professional Development series provides continuing education credit for teachers and interested professionals. The courses are designed to provide tools for teaching students with learning disabilities and ADHD, but are beneficial for all students.
