Programs and Workshops

We work one-on-one with each child and their family to develop a plan for diagnosis and remediation. Children graduate from our programs with a keen understanding of their learning strengths and challenges and the tools and strategies to help themselves through high school and beyond. We provide parents with educational consultation and financial planning options to help them advocate for their children and source the best tools for their child.

Satellite Schools Program

The Community Satellite Schools Program supports at-risk children with diagnosed or suspected Learning Disabilities through one-on-one remedial teaching at their home school, along with Psychological Educational Assessments for those who are in need. These children come from families with multiple barriers to accessing the supports they need to be successful in school, including poverty, new immigrants, accessibility, language barriers, and more.

By subsidizing the cost of tutoring, and providing it at the home school of the child, we remove many of the existing barriers to the educational support they need.

      Parent Workshops & Support

      As a parent or guardian of a child with a Learning Disability, you might have many questions about Learning Disabilities, what a Psychological Assessment is, how to navigate the school system, and ways to support your child. LDAV recognizes that LDs have an impact not only a child’s academics and experience in school, but also their social-emotional development and relationships, and we aim to provide holistic support to address these areas.

      Beginning in Fall 2019, parents/guardians with children registered for tutoring will have the opportunity to participate in four, low-cost informational workshops which will answer the common questions parents have about LDs. In addition, we offer phone or in-person consultations with our Director of Learning Support, Norlan Cabot, who can provide individualized advice and resources.

        Note

        Our mandate is to work with children who have a suspected or diagnosed Learning Disability. This is categorized as a ‘Q’ designation by the Ministry of Education. Unfortunately, at this time, we are unable to serve children with other disabilities such as Autism, Developmental Disabilities and Behavioral Disabilities. If you child has a Learning Disability and a second disability then please get in touch with our Program Manager to discuss this further.
