It is called "The Can­adian Association for Children With Learning Disabilities". This is a strong and active group that has done much to further a better education system for all children. They have, this ye?ar >. added the word Adult to their name. Their aim now is to help not only children but adults too. Under this association all the prov­inces in Canada have their separate association with many Chapters through­out the Provinces. Alberta has a very strong and act­ive association with organized Chapters from Fort McMurray and Slave Lake to Maorath and Cardston. We are pleased to^tell you that there is a "Cardston Magrath Association for Children^and Adults with Learning Disabilities .

Today, 10 to 15% of the normal school pop­ulation suffer from learning disabil­ities that seriously affect their academic progress, despite proven intellect ranging from normal to superior. These children suffer from many different problems that prevent them from mastering adequately one or more of the crucial skills, e.i. read­ing, written language, verbal fluency, sp elling and/or arithmetic. If your child has problems in school and you would like some information and help or if you would like to help, please join your local association and give your strength to help change the hope . . . . 1 59 ********************************** of the future for this group, By active participation you can find many others who have the same problems and add strength to help Cardston, Magrath, Alberta and Canada achieve our goal.
