On October 15, 2021, Lee Pesky Learning Center (LPLC) received support in the amount of $600,000 from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. Support from the Kellogg Foundation—November 1, 2021 through October 31, 2024—will increase high quality childcare through training and coaching early childcare providers using research-based best practices to support whole child development.
Lee Pesky had learning disabilities at a time when there was little understanding of common issues like dyslexia, dysgraphia, and ADHD. His family struggled to find the support Lee needed in overcoming his obstacles to learning. They did the best they could with the few resources available at the time, and Lee was able to complete college and become a business owner. After their son passed away in 1995 at the age of 30, Alan and Wendy Pesky founded Lee Pesky Learning Center to honor Lee’s legacy by helping children with learning differences in a way they weren’t able to help their son.
Our vision is to create a pathway to learning for everyone.
Since 1997, we have been working with students, families, schools, and communities to understand and overcome obstacles to learning.
