RISE with Us

The Learning Disabilities Society (LDS) is a research-based, non-profit charity serving children with learning disabilities in the Greater Vancouver area. We offer intensive, individualized, evidence-based programs that target specific learning needs. We support children regardless of their family’s ability to pay.  

Our Research-informed Individualized Student Education (RISE) program = RESULTS and SUCCESS!

Assistive Technology Studio Launch

Our AT Studio showcases over a dozen hardware and software assistive technology tools that can enhance learning for individuals with learning differences. 

RISE at Home

With families facing school closures and social distancing, LDS is committed to continuing to provide quality 1:1 instruction and support to students through our RISE at Home online learning platform.  

Support At Home Learning

Help us make our new RISE at Home online platform available to all students in need by supporting the LDS Bursary Program.
