The Learning Disabilities Association of BC – South Vancouver Island’s project will foster the capacity of children with learning and behavioural challenges. While each child requires individualized programming, this comprehensive program includes educating each child about their unique learning strengths in a safe, developmentally-appropriate environment in the Westshore or in central Victoria. Children receive one-on-one support or attend small groups to develop an understanding of how they learn and what strategies work. Instruction based on best practices and current research guide staff to ensure children achieve their learning goals.
