The Learning Disabilities Society (formerly, the Learning Disabilities Association Vancouver) is a non-profit with a mission to empower every child and adolescent in Vancouver with a Learning Disability to achieve life-long success and happiness. In partnership with the University of British Columbia LDS provides research-based instruction to children who struggle in school. Our specialized interventionists offer individualized and professional support that teaches children to leverage their learning strengths in order to overcome their learning challenges. Within 2 to 3 years, our programs teach children to be independent in the school system.
Several programs are offered, they include: Parent Workshops, One-to-One Summer Tutoring, One-on-One Remedial Instruction (School Year), as well as Satellite Schools Program.
