Stories of success
At LDS, we are driven by our mission to empower all children and youth with learning differences to recognize their unique strengths and develop the tools to achieve lifelong confidence and success. We believe that our approach to empowering our children is special because we work to deliver individualized services to each student based on their needs, and as a charity, we do that for every student we work with, regardless of the family's financial situation.
This video will feature some of our families and what they have to say about the work we do at LDS.

Stories of resilience
If there’s been one constant in our work at LDS this year, it’s been to remain nimble and responsive to the needs of our students and families. In response to the COVID crisis have innovated through the development, adoption and integration of technology that ensures accessibility and continuity of high quality learning support for our families.

What our students have to say
Our community of volunteers
We all know the adage, ‘it takes a village to raise a child’... at LDS we know it’s been extra challenging to bring that village together this year. That's why we are fostering a community of virtual volunteers to help enrich our students' experience with us, and also build their social skills.

We have the solution; you can be part of it
Our final RISE to the Challenge video will go into more detail about our why as an organization. Why is it so important that we work to empower ALL children and youth who have learning differences? What risks do they face? Do we have proven solutions to help improve outcomes for every one of these children? (spoiler alert: yes!)
The supports that LDS offers are critical for each individual child and for the health, safety and sustainability of their families and our communities. Please join our team of supporters by making a contribution to RISE to the Challenge today!
