“While kids are back in school learning, marginalized students are challenged more than ever,” said Dana Buchman, founder of Promise Project. “That’s why Promise Project is so important. Not only does Promise provide free, state-of-the-art neuropsychological evaluations, when coupled with advocacy and parent support, Promise ensures students are put on a path to education they deserve.”

Promise Project, in collaboration with Columbia University Medical Center and New York Presbyterian Hospital, is New York City’s most effective and comprehensive program committed to helping marginalized families get the support they need for children living with learning disabilities.
