Summer tutoring in Surrey

The Learning Disabilities Association offers sessions for kids and teens.

For parents of any child aged six to 14 who struggles with the basics of reading and math skills, finding affordable summer tutoring can be a challenge.  The Learning Disabilities Association – Fraser South Chapter (LDAFS) can help by offering individualized one-to-one tutoring at the LDAFS Resource Centre, Suite 201, 13766 72 Ave.

Your child will be tutored by a specially trained tutor who works under the direction and mentorship of an experienced, certified teacher using research-based strategies developed to help children with learning disabilities, ADD or any child who is having difficulty with reading, writing or math.

The goal of the program is to help the child become a more competent and able learner. A child does not have to be diagnosed as having a learning disability to attend the program.

Tutoring is available from July 6 to Aug. 28 and students attend either daily for two week sets or twice per week for July and/or August. Each tutoring lesson is 1-1/2 hours.

Register early for the best availability of times.

It is estimated that 10 to 15 per cent of the population has learning disabilities.

LDAFS programs are designed to help these children by providing early intervention at an affordable cost.

To make it affordable to all families, some partial subsidies are available courtesy of the CKNW Orphan’s Fund for families in financial need.

LDAFS will also offer a summer program that helps students with learning disabilities, or ADHD prepare for the challenges of secondary school.

Steps for Success is a program that teaches students to become effective self-advocates while preparing them to be more confident learners in high school and beyond.

The class size is limited to six so attention can be devoted to each student.

Students will learn how to understand and accept their learning difference, speak up about their strengths and learning styles, develop communication skills and gain self-awareness and self-confidence.

The program runs Aug. 31 to Sept. 4 from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. or 1:30-4:30 p.m. at the LDAFS Resource Centre.

More information is available at www.ldafs.org or by contacting Tania at 604-591-5156.
