LD Student Social

Grades 6 – 9

LD Student Social is a small-group, bi-weekly program for students in grades 6-9 who are experiencing secondary characteristics associated with learning difficulties (i.e., low self-esteem, poor social and/or emotional regulation) due to a diagnosed, identified, or suspected learning disability.

These bi-weekly sessions offer a safe and inclusive space for students with learning disabilities to meet and connect with other students who share similar life experiences as a result of their learning disability.

The goal of this program is to instill confidence, self-esteem, and a sense of belonging among the participants while helping them to build coping and self-advocacy skills. Sessions incorporate a combination of discussion, instruction, and engaging games and activities in a small-group setting.
