Who we are


The Learning Disabilities Association of Wellington County (LDAWC) started in 1973 with Nene Lott, now a lifetime member, as its first president. The Association continues to be a grass roots organization which relies on volunteers to carry out its many functions. The Association does not have a permanent office. The best way to receive support is to email questions or concerns to: info@ldawc.ca
