LDS is a growing, innovative nonprofit charity that offers accessible, inclusive, research-based expert learning and related supports for learners with suspected or diagnosed learning differences. Our comprehensive programs span the full development cycle from ages 3 to adult and offer a holistic approach to academic and social-emotional development to ensure all students have the skills and confidence they need to realize their full potential.
Our expanding Research-informed Individualized Student Education (RISE) programs and services are currently delivered in multiple ways including at our Learning Centres in East Vancouver and North Vancouver, on our electric bus mobile classroom, at a growing number of local schools, and virtually across British Columbia through our online adaptive RISE at Home learning platform.
Our mission is to empower all children and youth with learning differences to recognize their unique strengths and develop the tools to achieve lifelong confidence and success.
One to one instruction: Offered in our East Vancouver and North Vancouver centres, as well as at home (online), our one-to-one instruction is suitable for students ages 5 through 18 with a suspected or diagnosed learning difference. RISE students work one-to-one with an expert instructor on ongoing, explicit instruction, and homework support. Sessions are twice a week and are ongoing.
Early RISErs: Designed and facilitated by a group of early childhood professionals, Early RISErs focuses on key areas of learning and development including early literacy & numeracy, speech language acquisition, social and emotional learning, and physical literacy. This gives families a detailed snapshot of their child’s learning and development to date, and engages young children in hands-on learning opportunities carefully scaffolded to each child’s needs. This is a 9-10-week program that operates on Fridays or Saturdays.
RISE TEAM: This innovative employment readiness program is designed to help teenagers with learning differences transition from high school to paid employment, training, or higher education.
