What are people saying about us?
  • The greatest pleasure of all is seeing the improved confidence and the renewed enjoyment that the students experience when reading; an activity which prior to the LINKS program caused a great deal of frustration.
    Methods and Resource Teacher
  • My daughter is having her assessment done this Saturday and we are all very excited and grateful to your organization for setting us on the right track. We felt we were 'blind' in our search for progress. You came to our rescue!!

  • “I had the great pleasure of attending your SFS Workshop. Within the first ten minutes I came to regret that I had not signed up for the complete two day session, and given the opportunity again I would certainly do so. I did come away much more knowledgeable than when I arrived, which is positive, but also with the realization of how much more I should know to enable me to serve learning disabled clients more effectively.”
    Employment counselor
  • "The confidence I gained in myself as a result of the LDANB Program prompted me to enroll in university. I went for four years part time and one year full time. In 2005 I graduated earning a 3.6 GPA. I experienced pride in myself for the first time in my life the day I walked across that stage.”

  • Garath has always been very good at reading facial expressions and guessing with pictures. After a summer of testing, a psychologist recommended the Barton system for his specific type of dyslexia. Luckily we learned that the LDANB uses this system in our own city. We knew that we were in for the long haul since we had already been with other tutors for a few years and he was still struggling with the alphabet and stuck with only about 20 memorized words (even though he was already in Grade 2). About a year in, a one page, three paragraph story was sent home for him to read over a long break. We dreaded the fear, frustration and disappointment that would ensue as we saw all of the long five and six letter words on the page. However, we shed tears of joy that night as he sat down and slowly but surely sounded each word out, only getting caught on one word that did not follow the usual sound rules. To be honest, we did not expect this progress after just one year. It has been a few months since then, and we continue to see progress and most importantly see him look at words on a page without any fear.
