RISE at School
Our RISE one-to-one remedial instruction is also delivered within school settings. We are currently working at or in collaboration with several public and independent schools.
RISE is for students in grades 1 through 12 who have a suspected or diagnosed learning difference.
RISE at School is offered at participating elementary and secondary schools.
We are able to place instructors directly in your school, or at a neighbouring location that is easily and safely accessed by students during regular school hours.
Sessions are scheduled in collaboration with school staff and teachers to accommodate your child’s existing class schedule.
In our Research-informed Individualized Student Education (RISE) learning support program, students work one-to-one with a qualified instructor on ongoing, remedial support, explicit instruction, tutoring and homework support. The goal of this program is to improve student independence, confidence, and academic success.Learn More

Here are some key features and what you can expect in our one-to-one program. We will discuss the options best suited for your child and family during and following your intake interview.

- Share relevant educational documents (IEP, PsychEd, report cards) with LDS to review and determine learning needs and priorities.
- Depending on program fit, your child will receive one-to-one explicit instruction in foundational skills such as phonics, reading comprehension, written output, and/or math, or homework support taught by experienced, specially trained instructors.
- Students develop executive function skills such as working memory, attention, planning and organization through test preparation, note-taking, and study skills.
