The Learning Curve Society
in Victoria BC
The South Vancouver Island Chapter was formed in 1981 by a group of committed parents and teachers who were concerned about their children, or children in their classrooms who were not reaching their potential. LDA-SVI is the only organization on Vancouver Island providing these specialized programs for children and youth.
What We Stand For
The quality – outcomes for children, youth, and families – of our services, especially given our small resource base. Small but mighty.
The Learning Curve’s vision is a community where diverse learning needs are met.
The Learning Curve supports, educates and advocates in partnership with families and care providers with children and youth who experience learning and behavior challenges.
We believe that the greatest personal growth and learning occurs when children are provided with safe, nurturing environments that recognize and celebrate their strengths. Current research and an expansive theoretical base reinforce how emotions impact brain development, belief in one’s capacity to learn, and a sense of hope for future success in learning. This understanding informs all aspects of our work. We also believe that parents who recognize that learning can be a struggle and honor the learning journey of their child or youth, with compassion, are crucial to the processes of development and learning. Our approach is twofold: Parents and care providers must also have their strengths acknowledged and nurtured for the potential of children to be reached. The results are life-changing for the children, youth, and families we work alongside.
What is a Learning Disability?

These may include language processing; phonological processing; visual spatial processing; processing speed; memory and attention; as well as planning and decision-making functions (Learning Disabilities of Canada’s link).
