Why choose Learning Disabilities Society?

 

Explicit, Effective and Individualized Instruction = RESULTS!

 

Individualized Instruction

We work one-on-one with each child and their family to develop a plan for diagnosis and remediation. We assist students in achieving expected competencies in core academic skills such as literacy and numeracy. 

 

Progress Monitoring 

Ongoing progress monitoring is used to assess students academic performance, to quantify a students rate of improvement or responsiveness to instruction, and to evaluate the effectiveness of instruction.

 

Research Partnership with Academic Institutions

These partnerships’ core objective is to improve writing instruction and student outcomes for elementary and secondary children struggling with writing skill development. More precisely, we aim to develop effective interventions to improve writing skills in after-school programs and evaluate writing progress during intervention to ensure that all struggling students are improving. 

This research was supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.

 

Orton Gillingham Approach (OG)

The Orton-Gillingham (OG) Approach is one methodology that we employ. It is a direct, multisensory, structured, sequential, diagnostic, and prescriptive way to teach literacy when reading, writing, and spelling does not come easily to individuals, such as those with dyslexia. In the hands of a well-trained and experienced instructor, it is a powerful tool of exceptional breadth, depth, and flexibility. Self Regulated Strategy Development (SRSD) is rated as the best evidence-based, classroom-proven writing method helping all level of K-12 excel at writing and learning.

 

FastBridge Program

The Formative Assessment System for Teachers (FAST™) combines Curriculum-Based Measurement (CBM) and Computer-Adaptive Testing (CAT) to transform the way we measure and monitor student progress in reading, math and social-emotional behaviour. 

 

Self Regulated Strategy Development (SRSD)

Self Regulated Strategy Development (SRSD) is rated as the best evidence-based, classroom-proven writing method helping all level of K-12 excel at writing and learning.

 

Success Rates

Based on the results from a longitudinal research study conducted with UBC, our students saw a 54% improvement in literacy(reading and writing), in addition to a 42% improvement in mathematics, relative to general education norms.
