Ldanl stands for the Learning Disabilities Association of Newfoundland and Labrador. They offer programs that center around building social competence and independence skills. Through various activities, social programs, and workshops the association strives to bring a better understanding of learning disabilities to the general population. Their vision is to have students with learning disabilities be identified and appropriately accommodated as early as possible, helping them to reach their full potential.
