The READ Project

together we can change the future!

Do you work with young persons who struggle with reading and writing; do they require additional support to access our tutoring program?

You can refer them to us and we will work together for their success!

We DO NOT require any formal diagnosis!

Project READ (Reading Empowerment Across Differences) is designed for youth with LD, who require additional support for accessing our online program effectively. Irrespective of the learner’s geographical location in the province we work with a service provider (referral contact) from their own community, who can directly assist the learner in receiving our online Reading support program.

Learners for this program come from various vulnerable backgrounds: underprivileged, marginalized, drop out, potentially at-risk with law, substance abuse etc. Our aim is to bridge those extra layer of differences many young persons may have from their peers, in accessing the specialized Reading program to overcome the LD barriers, and help them achieve in life.

Once referred the young person will be matched up with a tutor and receive one-on-one online support with reading and spelling. We use the Barton System and we will be in touch with the referral contacts throughout the duration of the project. We are able to provide 30 weeks of tutoring currently and hoping to continue the project beyond this year.

Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions: stephanie@ldanl.ca

Newcomer Youth

With the support from the Office of Immigration and Multiculturalism, the READ project now has a dedicated stream for young persons who are newcomers. We encourage educators who work with newcomer students and other newcomer service providers to submit referrals .
