Grades 1 – 8

With funding from the Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF), LDANR is excited to continue its first individualized math program!

JUMP Math is an individualized tutoring program for children in Grades 1 to 8 who are performing a minimum of one year behind in the area of math due to a diagnosed, identified, or suspected math disability (dyscalculia), and who are showing signs of math anxiety.   

Participants work one-to-one with a trained numeracy tutor to build foundational math skills and computational fluency. Sessions are taught using a combination of direct instruction and engaging math games and activities. Participants are also able to set goals and visualize their progress throughout the program in order to foster math confidence.

  • Be in Grade 1 through 8 at the time of participation;

Fall 2021 Program Details

Given the progression of the COVID-19 outbreak and the uncertainty surrounding the upcoming Fall season, the LDANR made the decision to continue our suspension of in-person programming. It has been determined that minimizing face-to-face interaction between our program participants, caregivers, and staff would be the best measure to ensure safety at this time. 

The LDANR Team have been working diligently to come up with creative solutions to continue to provide services to our program families during this challenging time. With this being noted, we are excited that we will be offering JUMP Math online. See below for program details.

What people are saying about LDANR’s JUMP Math program:

I just want to let you know that the online experience has been amazing. My son has been so happy and excited to participate. He really likes [the JUMP Program] and he is the one who is always waiting for his session to begin. I am so thankful with all your team and I don’t have words to express my gratitude. Thank you again for all your support. 

-JUMP Math Program Caregiver, Fall 2020

Thank you so much for organizing [the JUMP] program.  We really found it incredibly useful for our daughter.  The tutor was incredible, knowledgeable and built a trusting relationship with Charleigh quickly.  We noticed Charleigh engaging more and more with the activities.

-JUMP Math Program Caregiver, Fall 2020

Our daughter was struggling with reading and math. We participated in reading rocks and Jump. Both programs exceeded our expectations. The volunteers are fantastic and we’ve had nothing but amazing experiences. So thankful programming like this is provided in our area. Our daughter has come leaps and bounds because of these programs and the staff and volunteers.
