LD@school – Learning Disabilities Association of Ontario

We are passionate about ensuring the success of all students with learning disabilities in classrooms across Ontario.

The LD@school website features resources and professional development materials in a variety of formats, which highlight evidence-based, evidence-informed and practice-informed approaches, practices and strategies that can be put directly to use in the classroom.

Why LD@school?

Students with LDs make up the largest group within special education, at approximately 40% of students identified as exceptional by an IPRC [i]. With the right supports, these students CAN learn, and can achieve great success at school and beyond.

With support from the Ontario Ministry of Education’s Special Education/Success For All Branch, LD@school provides Ontario educators with meaningful information to support students with LDs.
