Welcome to The RILEY Project – Empowering the 1 in 5 individuals with learning differences through creative storytelling and vital resources to thrive in the 21st century.

Our Mission

The RILEY Project stands for Researching Intelligent Learning and Empowering Youth and Young Adults with Learning Differences. Through media, we offer a fresh voice for students and professionals with learning differences to share experiences and build a community.


Collaboration is key to our mission. The RILEY Project values diverse partnerships, conducting engaging interviews, podcasts, and articles that foster skill development in the learning differences community. Join us to empower students and young adults, making a profound impact on their lives and creating a stronger, more inclusive community.

Community Resources

Empowerment begins with access to valuable resources. At The RILEY Project, we proudly share essential resources for students and families with learning differences, empowering them to navigate the LD landscape successfully.

In their own words

We believe that authentic storytelling and strong partnerships are the keys to driving positive change. To that end, we want to share experiences of young people with learning differences to help shape the narrative. Discover how the power of storytelling can lead to transformative change and connect fellow students with essential resources and support. Together, let’s create a more equitable and empowering educational system.

Connecting and Listening to Students with Learning Differences

The RILEY Project is an innovative approach to supporting students with learning differences. We believe that each student has a story to tell, and we want to help facilitate the conversation on how students with learning differences can amplify their voices. We invite you to learn more about our site and contact us with any questions, comments, or ideas for partnership/collaboration.
