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.

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!
