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!

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

watching children's lives change for the positive.

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

they care about children and family. Their caring is evident from the first person you talk to on the phone or meet in the office!

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

help even more children with learning disabilities and help schools be more effective in helping kids and families.

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.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

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

Provide their turtoring services for more students.

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.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

One thing I'd also say is that...

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.

LDA has been a force of support for our Head Start Program and our families. LDA has provided intervention stategies to be implemented by our classroom teachers with children who have potential delays. Our teachers would be lost without LDA.

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

working as a partner to support families in receiving special ed services for their children.

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

their dedication to serving children with delays.

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

dedicated and professional.

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

take over the struggling local LEA and run it so that children's and families educational needs are met.
