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. While our physical office remains closed due to the pandemic, the LDACK staff are continuing to offer support, advocacy, and programs remotely.
