Know Your Rights!

KNOW YOUR RIGHTS is a project of the Learning Disabilities Association of BC, South Vancouver Island Chapter (LDA-SVI) in partnership with the Law Foundation of British Columbia and the BC Government.

The purpose of this project is to provide parents of children with Learning Disabilities (LD) and/or Attention Deficit Disorder (AD/HD), with information that will help them to be effective advocates for their child. Know Your Rights has been researched and written to help you with this important task. We hope you will make use of the information in this booklet to support your on-going advocacy efforts and to make sure your child receives the best education possible.
