KUWAITI ASSOCIATION FOR LEARNING DIFFERENCES
The Kuwaiti Association for Learning Differences (KALD) is a social welfare association that collaboratively works towards helping all individuals, especially students in private schools in Kuwait, who have learning difficulties and/or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder through setting up awareness programs, training courses, and other educational activities.
Kald that was established in 2007 by Mrs. Amaal Al Sayyer (Chairwoman) with the help of a number of volunteers is funded by Masharaee Al Khair and Kuwait Projects Company (Holding). Its Board of Trusties includes specialists, educators and parents who believe in KALD’s cause. Members of kald have chosen “learning differences” instead of “learning difficulties” because they believe that the targeted students are intelligent people and the only difference between them and other students is that they have their own way of learning.
