The LDAV is a registered charity and non-profit that offers affordable and accessible remedial teaching for children and youth (7-17) with Learning Disabilities. We exist to ensure that children with Learning Disabilities and their families have access to the tools they need to increase self-esteem and achieve academic success. We do this by delivering individual and group programs and individualized support to children and families.
How we help:
Our goal is that every child with a Learning Disability is diagnosed and has the family, school and community supports they need to realize their goals. The LDAV builds academic success with individualized programs, connects parents with resources, and raises awareness with training and outreach in the community.
LDAV's individualized programs are designed to target the specific needs of each child. In our tutoring programs, each child works towards achieving three learning goals for the term. Progress is measured and reported on twice a year. We also partner with community schools to offer tutoring to the most vulnerable children in our community. Finally, we offer bursaries for low income families to cover the costs of tutoring and immersion schools.

About LEARNING DISABILITIES ASSOCIATION OF BC-VANCOUVER CHAPTER
Over 18,000 children and youth in B.C. are diagnosed with a Learning Disability. With few resources in the school system to support them they are being left behind.
By definition children with learning challenges are of average or above average intelligence but blocks in one or more areas of the brain mean they have challenges understanding and using language and their ability to receive, process, recall or communicate information is affected. Learning challenges can lead to social anxiety, low self-esteem and many other challenges.
Together we can help. LDAV offers remedial teaching that builds confidence by helping children understand their unique strengths and teaches them strategies and skills for overcoming their challenges. Armed with these tools children can advocate for themselves in school and access the education that will allow them to achieve their dreams.
Every child has the right to learn and the power to achieve. Help us make this a reality today.
