Please read prior to applying for an LDANR program:

  • These programs are designed to support children who are struggling with a learning disability, however the individual does not need to be formally diagnosed with a learning disability to participate. LDANR recognizes that a formal diagnosis is not always possible for families and therefore we welcome children who are struggling in their academics and social life due to an identified or suspected learning disability.

Winter 2018 Program Applications accepted November 27, 2017 – January 15, 2018

Other Important Program Information:

  • Applicants will be screened for other exceptionalities (i.e. autism, down syndrome, FAS, developmental delays, etc.) as LDANR’s mandate is to offer programs and services for those with learning disabilities.
  • LDANR is not designed to treat students with severe mental health or students with severe emotional and behavioural issues. B.E.S.T. and S.L.A.M. programs are not behavioural programs, but rather programs to support children with learning disabilities through LD awareness, self-advocacy, building self-esteem and social skills. 
  • To benefit from the program, participants must be able to learn in a small group setting. Reading Rocks is the only one-on-one program.
  • There are LIMITED SPACES in all programs!

Cost
