1 in 5 Americans struggle with learning and thinking differences, such as ADHD and Dyslexia. They are misunderstood, undiagnosed, and dismissed, and this difference is viewed as a weakness. A lack of awareness, stigma, and a culture of status quo leaves them on a journey that is stacked against them, preventing many from reaching their potential, and costing society more than $500 billion.

Understood is the only lifelong guide for those who learn and think differently. Today, we help more than 24 million people each year discover their potential, how to take control, find community, and stay on a positive path along each stage of life’s journey.

Once learning and thinking differences are embraced, confidence is built, community is created, jobs become careers, and life is more fulfilling.

When others support this journey, and people are broadly embraced, everyone thrives. By shaping our world for difference, our economy, our culture, our communities, and all of our lives are strengthened and everyone can — and will — be Understood. 

We hope you join us!
