Additionally, Landmark College offers a post-baccalaureate certificate in Learning Differences and Neurodiversity, enriching educators’ expertise in supporting diverse learners.
By collaborating closely with Six Red Marbles, known for its expertise in curriculum development and learning experience design, Landmark College aims to further unlock the potential of neurodivergent students. Together, they have crafted a diverse range of 3- to 4-credit-hour undergraduate courses. These courses incorporate a balance of synchronous and asynchronous elements to accommodate varied learning preferences.
This partnership opens new doors for neurodivergent students, offering them unprecedented opportunities to pursue an associate degree with concentrations in Business, Career, Communications, and Computer Science. Through Landmark College’s strength-based approach and SRM’s innovative educational solutions, neurodivergent students can unleash their full potential and embark on transformative learning journeys.
“This collaboration offers a unique opportunity to show our capabilities in meeting the needs of diverse learners. We have always worked to build accessible learning materials, and this project will expand our deeper understanding of learner support,” said Robin Zaccardo, Chief Experience Officer of Six Red Marbles.
