The St. Louis LDA has been a wonderful resource for many years. With an eye to truly quality education for kids with learning differences and ADD, St. Louis LDA's volunteers and paid staff are always helpful in answering questions over the phone, directing one to resources which our school districts seem to know nothing about, and being informed and current. I have never been made to feel "dumb" even though at times I think my questions WERE. The message that parents and students must develop advocacy is delivered over and over, and LDA of St. Louis helps to give people the tools to develop that advocacy. While my sons have not taken advantage of the after-school tutoring, I understand that it too is very good. LDA of St. Louis has given me the clear message that is OK and the right thing to do to expect more nad work to get what your kids need in school. It is OK and the right thing to do to have high expectations and let our kids hold onto their dreams because they CAN achieve them.

The Great!

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

Have gotten much information from workshops and over the phone; have raised my level of awareness about how I and the schools could and should help my son with LD/ADD.

Ways to make it better...

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

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

The very accepting manner in which the staff deals with the parents; the impression I always got that there IS a way to help.

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

helpful; knowlegeable.

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

be able to set up more offices around our area; in Missouri we are really behind the timnes with how we educate LD kids; we need the quality services which LDA of St. Louis provides, all over the metro St. Louis area.

Ways to make it better...

It would be great to have a satellite office nearer to wh ere we live (University City) to help with tutoring.

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

funding--but I really am uninfomrned here.

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

Thank you to the people who are so very caring and passionate about helping our kids! And thank you for expecting excellence from our teachers. Thank you for the message that LD does NOT mean "not as smart."

St. Louis Learning Disabilities is a wonderful organization! They help many children and teens become more successful. I don't know what St. Louis would do without them!

I have 2 children with learning disabilities. I am a speech-language pathologist, but my practice has focused on adults. My children attend a private school and the resource teacher recommended attending the LDA workshops. I attended all of the them and the knowledge that I received has been utilized with my children daily. It has increased my ability to advocate for my children. Thanks!
