Tutoring offered

Summer support is being offered for children ages six to 14 who struggle with reading, writing, spelling or math.

One-to-one tutoring is available from the Learning Disabilities Association Fraser South Chapter (LDAFS) at its Newton resource centre, 201-13766 72 Ave.

Specially trained tutors work under the direction of a special-education teacher, using strategies developed to help the child with learning disabilities, attention deficit disorder or any child who is behind in reading or math. However, a child does not have to be diagnosed with a learning disability to attend.

Tutors assess reading or math skills on the first day, and a lesson plan is developed to address learning challenges.

“At least 10 to 15 per cent of the population has learning disabilities,” a news release from the non-profit organization states.

Partial subsidies are available courtesy of the CKNW Orphan’s Fund for families in financial need.

Tutoring is available until Sept. 1, and students attend for one hour, Monday to Friday, for three weeks. For more information, contact info@ldafs.org or 604-591-5156.
