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.

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!

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.

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!

the St Louis LDA was instrumental in getting my daughter the help she needs at school. I attended countless meetings with the "CARE team" at school and jumped through every hoop they threw my way, and yet I still could not get her the help she needed. In despair I contacted the LDA and they gave me timely and critical information that changed the way the school was looking at her challenges. When I brought an advocate to our next meeting we got more assistance than I would have dreamed possible. We also began using the tutoring services at LDA. The tutors are wonderful and truly understood what my daughter needed and how to motivate her. Everyone at LDA is there for the children and their love and committment to helping these kids is undeniable. I feel blessed to have found the LDA and apprecaite everything they have done for my family.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

that they totally changed my daughter's life. She was feeling stupid and incapable before we found LDA. Their help has shown her that she can learn and she can succeed.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

kind, compassionate and caring, in addition to being highly qualified.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

make the world a better place by helping millions of learning disabled children. They could provide free advocates for every LD child's IEP meetings, tutoring services, testing and counseling for families in crisis.

LDA has been a great source of support in many ways for many years. There was after school tutoring for my son as well as testing services to evaluate his needs and get him more help at school. They have great caring staff and are a wealth of information and connection to language and other professionals who can help struggling students. Thanks LDA!

My middle school daughter is finally off to a great start in 7th grade after so many years of struggling. The summer workshop on study skills taught her how to advocate for herself and use the techniques that work for her own learning style.

When I have questions about planning my child's services for learning disabilities, I often contact an LDA educational consultant and have always received very helpful information and new perspectives. My child's teachers and service providers are quite good but it is always helpful to have another point of view. Most importantly, I think it is extremely reassuring to know there is always someone there you can call.
