Learning Disabilities Association of Chatham-Kent is a non-profit charitable organization committed to helping individuals reach their full potential. Our mission is to provide leadership in learning disabilities advocacy, research, education and services and to advance the full participation of children, youth and adults with learning disabilities in today’s society.

We are affiliated with the Learning Disabilities Association of Ontario www.ldao.ca and the Learning Disabilities Association of Canada www.ldac-taac.ca

Learning Disabilities Association of Chatham-Kent is supported by the Government of Canada’s Emergency Community Support Fund, Community Foundations of Canada, and United Way of Chatham-Kent.

An additional source of funding that LDACK relies on is generated from Riverview Bingo in Chatham. Dedicated individuals volunteer 1-2 times a month resulting in direct revenue to fund specific programs. During 2019, Bingo revenues totaled over $11,000!
