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!
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.
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.
