Featured Not-For-Profit 
As we all slowly emerge from our lockdowns and begin to rebuild our economy, Coast Communications will be featuring not-for profits in our COVID-19 newsletter to encourage us to all consider how we can begin our own recovery while helping others. Please email us if you have a charity you want us to profile. 

Profile: Learning Disabilities Society

The Learning Disabilities Society is a research based, not-for-profit, charitable foundation serving children with learning disabilities in the Greater Vancouver area. They recently launched the RISE at Home program (Research-informed Individualized Student Education) - an innovative, adaptive online learning platform that provides students with learning disabilities one-to-one at home instruction, just as they would get during in-person sessions.

Coast Communications was pleased to support LDS when they launched the program in March, and my son has been working with an LDS tutor: he commented to me that he really felt his reading was starting to come together. 

Learn more about Learning Disability Society's programs or help them make the program available to more children by donating.
