This is a wonderful organization that helps kids with learning disabilities and their families. From sponsorship of lectures and learning events to working with teachers in the schools to testing and tutoring individual children, this organization is a lifeline for families dealing with learning disabilities.

My child is a young adult now, but several years ago, while she was in middle school, a teacher recommended the St. Louis LDA to us as a resource. The staff was very helpful, and continued to be helpful for many years. The workshops and seminars for parents were educational. It's been a pleasure to watch the St. Louis LDA grow. The programs that are offered to children with Learning Disabilities and ADHD are much needed. They are a very special organization.
