Will you be one of our first Monthly Donors? Help us reach 25 by December 31, 2018.

“I thought I was alone – the only one who couldn’t do the work. Now I know that LD is a normal thing. I am still learning about it. I was insecure before I came to LDAV, now my confidence has gone way up.” - Gemma, LDAV client, age 14

Learning Disabilities Association Vancouver dreams of a world where all children with a Learning Disability can achieve life-long success and happiness. For nearly 50 years, we have been empowering children and young adults in our communities by offering low-cost, intensive, individualized remedial instruction. In two to three years of weekly instruction, children with Learning Disabilities gain the skills and knowledge to succeed in school and advocate for themselves. 

Starting this winter, LDAV is giving our donors and community members the opportunity to make an even bigger difference in the lives of vulnerable children with Learning Disabilities by launching a Monthly Giving program with a goal of 25 new donors by December 31st, 2018. Learn more about our campaign here.

Will you become one of our first monthly donors? By pledging today, you’ll ensure LDAV continues to provide our critical support to children in need and prevent the life-long, damaging effects of an untreated Learning Disability.

What People Are Saying

"We have seen a remarkable increase in our daughter's confidence and self esteem since she began tutoring with Vivi at LDAV. Her tutor has not only helped her to understand math much better but has also been an encouraging mentor."

— LDAV Parent

"My grandson used to come home every day saying, "Grandma, I'm invisible, I'm just invisible." My heart ached for him. Now he is supported with what he needs to achieve his goals, and I have the biggest smile on my face all the time. I'm so very proud of him. He truly is amazing."

— LDAV Grandparent

"LDAV was a light at the end of the tunnel."

— Lata, LDAV Parent

"Findlay is so much more confident now. He actually says, "Mummy, I like to read" now. He will actually pick up a chapter book, and read it on his own. He doesn't feel different, he feels like he can keep up. He's a lot happier. "

— Shayna, LDAV Parent
