About Us

Welcome to phase one of LD@home. This website has been built to help bring resources to the households of Ontario impacted by Learning Disabilities (LDs). Our vision is to provide education, knowledge and resources to assist you in your journey, as well as a safe place to connect with the LDA network across Ontario for ongoing support. Over time, we hope to expand this site to cover all issues across a lifetime of living with LDs. In phase one of this project, we are focused on supporting the early years of the journey through elementary school for parents and students. The Learning Disabilities Association of Ontario (LDAO) would like to offer our sincere thanks to The Ontario Trillium Foundation for its support of this phase of the project and allowing this vision to become a reality.

We are also interested in your feedback; within the site you will find opportunities to give us feedback as well as links to our social media accounts so you can help to shape the growth of this service into the future.
