New Program | Q and G Designations

For children with high-functioning autism, one-to-one explicit instruction can make a remarkable difference in their organization and communication skills. To enhance our delivery of service to this community, LDS is now offering reliable, research-backed one-to-one instruction for students with a Q or G designation. The instruction offered will support each individual’s strengths, weaknesses, and unique educational needs.

There are 10 spots available. Application will be open until spots are filled. Contact LDS directly to apply.

Announcing Our New Advisory Board

We’re excited to announce that LDS has a new Advisory Board. With over 120 years of combined professional experience at the provincial and national level, these educators have influenced policy decisions and championed the interests of persons with special needs and learning disabilities.

The role of the LDS Advisory Board will be to advise on policy, best practices and delivery of service. They will work to support the LDS Board of Directors in enhancing the effectiveness of LDS programs and will offer recommendations to address key issues of relevance to the LD community.
