On November 24, 2015 from 4:30-6:30 we will be hosting a Mixer in Summerside to help raise awareness of services for parents in the Western part of the Province. The event will be held at The Harbourfront Theatre and will feature demonstrations of the Island Reader and JUMP Math Programs.
Parents and Educators are encouraged to attend and share concerns and solutions with other parents and to meet LDAPEI Board Members and Staff. There is a wealth of information held by parents and educators that attend these events and sometimes the best information is from someone who has been through a similar situation. Please take this opportunity to connect.
Stay tuned for more details including how you can win a great door prize!

The Learning Disabilities Association of PEI is seeking volunteer Board members to complement the existing Board.
Current estimates suggest that up to 20% of Islanders live with a Learning Disability (LD) or Learning Limitation (LL) (presentation to Standing Committee on Education and Innovation October 7, 2014)
The Board of LDAPEI has strong professional and community representation from across the Island. We are seeking interest from those who would like to be a part of a group that is constantly exploring ways to improve community life for those with Learning Disabilities (LD) or Learning Limitations (LL).
Current direct services are offered across the Province by way of after school programs, referrals, assistive technology etc. Indirect services include research of LD/LL issues, raising awareness and engagement with all groups who involved in LD/LL issues including Government, Educators, those with LD/LL and parents.
Volunteer Board members attend approximately ten regular meetings per year, normally on the third Tuesday of each month starting at 7pm. Dependent upon the interests, skills and background of each individual there are opportunities to be a part of ad-hoc groups to support the Association in growing it's presence and supports offered.
Volunteer Board members are always needed to represent particular interests such as;
parents with children who have a LD or LL
community and business leaders who can bring their skills and acumen to a not for profit environment helping to ensure the Associations sustainable long term future.
professionals who are interested in research relevant to LD or LL issues, in particular as they relate to PEI
If you would like further information or wish to speak with an existing Board member before being nominated please contact us and we will make the arrangements.
Please submit your letter of interest and resume to email@example.com
The Board will review applications and make recruitment decisions based on the number of spaces currently available and the balance of Board membership.
