Grades 1 – 8

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

This project will implement one-on-one numeracy tutoring for children in Grades 1-8. This program is intended for children who are demonstrating difficulties in mathematics and showing signs of math anxiety due to a suspected or diagnosed learning disability (i.e. dyscalculia). This program will focus on both improving children’s numeracy skills while also improving their confidence in their math abilities! Children work one-on-one with a trained numeracy tutor for eight weeks on foundational numeracy skills and computational fluency. Sessions are taught through a combination of direct instruction and engaging math games and activities. Similar to our Reading Rocks program, children will practice self-regulation through goal-setting and graphing their success throughout the program.

An annual family LDA Membership fee is $50. For more information on the LDA Membership program click here.

Subsidy and payment plans may be available.


Winter 2021 Schedule

Given the progression of the COVID-19 outbreak and the uncertainty surrounding the upcoming winter 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.

Dates: February 1st – April 8th *
Time: 6:00 – 7:00 pm (Mondays and Wednesdays OR Tuesdays and Thursdays)
Location: Online (via Microsoft Teams) **
Duration: 8 weeks

* Programs will not run the week of February 15 – 19 (Brock Reading Week) or March 15 – 19 (March Break)

** In order to participate, participants must have access to a working device (e.g., computer, tablet, etc.) with microphone, camera, and internet connectivity.

What people are saying about LDANR’s math programs:

My child struggles in math. She gets frustrated and shuts down. This program helped my child gain confidence and see that we live in a world of math. She loved the positive feedback that they gave to every child

[My daughter’s] teacher cannot believe the difference in [my daughter]. I have noticed an increased confidence and willingness to answer questions.
– Small Group Math Program Parent, Fall 2017

Before starting in the S.M.A.R.T. Math program, our son had a strong dislike for math, mostly due to his lack of confidence with math. He would easily become frustrated with the simplest of equations. Since he has been enrolled in SMART, we have noticed less anxiety and frustration with math. When answering questions, he is much more confident and struggles less. Although he still doesn’t love math, this program will make his success in it easier.
