If your child has a learning disability, teaching him or her how to manage the disability will be essential to his or her confidence, performance in school—and in many cases—self esteem. Our Children’s Literacy Tutoring Programs are available to help children who have confirmed or suspected learning disabilities, including one beginning in August.
At Learning Disabilities Association of Manitoba more than half the calls we get are from parents who are concerned about their children. We know that about 1 in 10 Canadians, including approximately 120,000 Manitobans, struggle with a learning disability and many are not taking advantage of the supports and programs available to help them succeed despite their disability.
If you would like to find out more about our upcoming Children’s Literacy Tutoring Program, please visit the events listing on our website. The program is for children aged 6 – 11 who are experiencing academic difficulties in school due to a determined or suspected learning disability. The program is designed to provide one-to-one tutoring to help improve reading, writing, spelling and comprehension as well as to heighten the child’s academic confidence. Social skills will be addressed based on the needs of the child.
The program provides each child with: a trained literacy instructor, individualized lesson plans and a place to meet peers with similar needs. Parents are also involved through training sessions and have the opportunity to observe and learn strategies they can use at home.
The cost for the program is $150. It runs for three weeks beginning on August 6, with three, two-hour sessions per week at our office at 617 Erin Street in Winnipeg. Parents can choose to enroll their child in the morning or afternoon sessions. Also contact us about registering for the twice a week fall program.
