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 (LPLC) to honor Lee's legacy by helping children with learning differences in a way they weren't able to help their son.
LPLC is a research, teaching, and training organization headquartered in Boise, ID, with a vision to create a pathway to learning for everyone. Our mission is to work together with students, families, schools, and communities to better understand and overcome obstacles to learning.
Our 2021 TCS New York City Marathon fundraising team will positively impact the lives of children and adolescents, helping them become self-regulated and successful learners.
