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.
