As the office manager (and client) at St. Louis LDA, I would like to comment regarding the review by spedteach. This person's information was incorrect in 2009 and is still incorrect. St. Louis LDA will help all families, regardless of their ability to pay. Our tutoring sessions at present cost $59 a session, not $75. In 2009, it would have cost even less. What he/she may have misunderstood in quoting that cost, is that it COSTS LDA $74 to provide each session. Again, it COSTS THE CLIENT $59 a session. If you look around you will see that this is one of the lowest in the St. Louis area. Also, all of our tutors are certified special education teachers who work one-on-one with students. This individualized attention is what makes our program so successful. In addition, for the last year or so, we have provided tutoring scholarships to those who qualify. Since 2011, LDA has provided nearly $20,000 in scholarship money just for tutoring clients. Program-wide, in 2011, LDA provided over $295,000 in services at no cost or reduced cost to our clients.

My son was struggling in high school. An LDA consultant went with me to meetings with his school and was able to get him the services he needed to be successful, whether it was extra time on tests or rewording of material or whatever. Getting my son what he needed was first and foremost in my consultant's mind and it was obvious not only to those of us in the room during the meetings but also with my son. He still talks about her.

Turn around the face of education in this city/state/country. They really understand kids and what works and what doesn't.

I am a special educator and have referred many parents to LDA so that they can access the variety of services LDA provides. All parents rave about the services provided by LDA and are thrilled that they have found people who truly understand how their child learns and how it impacts the entire family! All of them, without exception, have told me they feel like they have a lifeline and that it is a blessing to have a nonprofit organization in St. Louis that actually understands learning disabilities and provides services that are reasonable and many services that are free. The number of people they help in the community is phenomenal and St. Louis is lucky to have so many professionals that care about kids!

The Great!

LDA provides resources IF you can afford them. Tutoring is about $75 a sesion and they recommend twice a week. Most families can't afford that amount. LDA is a good resource, it is the non for profit that I question.

Ways to make it better...

they were upfront about the costs associated with their services instead of protraying it as a non for profit. Their tutoring is higher than private individuals.

During the elementary school years, both of our children who are now 16 & 19 struggled in school, the school district was not very helpful and we were not sure where to start getting them help. Then I found out about LDA, they gave me resources and helpful information, then came in to the school as consultants for both children. They were great and gave us hope and guidance and the girls got the services they needed. Today they are both successful in academics and social situations. We owe their success to LDA!

Many of my students have become academically successful due to the support of Lda, not to mention the boost in their self esteem. This organization is truly focused on helping children and their families.

My daughter was struggling in school and her self esteem was beginning to fade. We noticed that she had some reading issues and spoke with our pediatrician. He recommended testing at LDA. We went for testing and everyone was very helpful and understanding. The testing was completed with care and compassion. The results of the testing were thorough and clear. Our daughter started tutoring and within a few months we could see a boost in her self esteem. I wish we would have contacted LDA sooner.

This is a wonderful organization that helps kids with learning disabilities and their families. From sponsorship of lectures and learning events to working with teachers in the schools to testing and tutoring individual children, this organization is a lifeline for families dealing with learning disabilities.

My daughter was struggling in school at the end of first grade. We had her tested by LDA and they provided invaluable insights into her learning styles and issues so that we could communicate with her school and help her be successful. So far second grade has been wonderful and she is happy and confident at school.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the evaluation of my daughter. The educational psychologist we used was caring and insightful and my daughter considered her a new friend!

St Louis LDA has been an invaluable resource for families of children with learning disabilities. Everyday they touch the lives of children who are struggling to learn. In my case, they provided tutoring for my children which helped them succeed in school. They are now productive adults with excellent jobs. Thank you LDA!
