PROMISE at Columbia

PROMISE at Columbia is committed to being the most effective, all-encompassing program to help children with learning disabilities get the support they need to succeed. Children receive state-of-the-art neuropsychological assessments, clinical recommendations and the follow-up necessary to get the services they need to learn.

PROMISE at Columbia is the only program of its kind, providing comprehensive services that enable children to reach their full potential—all in one place.  Columbia University Medical Center's affiliation with New York-Presbyterian Hospital allows PROMISE to address, in addition to learning issues, the emotional and behavioral consequences of LD that often have the most devastating effects on family and school life.  

With world-renowned research facilities and an innovative team dedicated to understanding learning disabilities, Promise is poised to transform the way learning disabilities are treated and understood in the future.

For families already burdened, a one-stop program can mean the difference between getting lost and getting help.
