The Mannis Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit foundation, was founded by Dr. Rebecca Mannis, PhD, in 2009 as a charitable vehicle to provide necessary services to the underserved communities of the learning disabled and learning-challenged. The Foundation's mission and activities stem from Dr. Mannis's 25 years of professional experience teaching children and adults and consulting to schools, nonprofits, and corporations about learning disabilities, remediation, individualized instruction, and adaptive technology. In addition to founding and directing the Ivy Prep Learning Center, which provides individualized instruction and enrichment to children and adults with learning difficulties, Dr. Mannis also coordinated educational services for cancer survivors and children with traumatic brain injury for The Making Headway Foundation for 14 years.

Dr. Mannis holds a PhD in Developmental Psychology with a specialization in Neuroscience and Education from Teachers College, Columbia University, and a master's degree in Reading, Language, and Learning Disabilities from the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Her publications include a chapter in the 1999 volume of Elsevier's Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Clinics of North America. She was also profiled in the Summer 2008 issue of Ed., the magazine of the Harvard Graduate School of Education, for her outstanding work with medically challenged children and adults.
