What is LD@school?
LD@school is a project of the Learning Disabilities Association of Ontario (LDAO). It includes this website as well as the Educators' Institute. LD@school is dedicated to providing Ontario educators with information, resources and research related to teaching students with learning disabilities (LDs).
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.
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.
