Children's Learning Institute: Dan L. Duncan Reading Initiative


The Dan L Duncan Programs at the Children's Learning Institute were created through the generosity of the Dan L Duncan family. Their mission is to enhance children's opportunities for successful living by providing them with individualized research-based clinical services. A highly unique aspect of our clinics is our focus on finding the most effective approaches for correcting child developmental and learning problems through a clinic structure that allows our research to inform our practice.
