path to learning

NELDC is a nonprofit organization serving all students, especially students who are having difficulty with learning and/or school behavior. Many of the students that come to us are very bright, yet continue to struggle in school.   Our goal is to provide students the opportunity, foundation and learning strategy to feel successful academically and to raise their self-esteem.  Our programs are non-clinical and school based.  Our intenational program is presently serving students in the United Arabe Emirates, China, India and Greece.  We are espcially proud of the accomplishments of our international staff who are working hard at achieving our academic goals including teaching English in China.

The New England Learning and Development Center’s independent evaluation program will pinpoint specific strengths and challenges affecting your child’s learning and or behavioral challenges. 

We provide parents with a good understanding how their child can learn as well as providing educators with strategies and support to improve academic performance, increase self confidence  and develop success in school and in life.


Since 2001, we have helped children diagnosed with ADHD and other learning issues excel in school.

Many parents have come to us after stimulant medications “stopped working” or are causing side effects.  We work with your child’s pediatrician so that instead of your child ending up on higher and higher doses of ADHD medication, your child becomes well behaved and focused often without the need of any ADHD medications.


Our approach to helping kids with ADHD is unique in that we focus on the interfering factors that are causing the attention and focusing difficulties, rather than masking the symptoms of ADHD.  Computer programs like Pearson’s Cog Med Program and the IFOCUS program have been proven to have a dramatic positive effect on attention and focusing behaviors.
