About Mindware Academy
MindWare Academy opened its doors in 2005 to meet the needs of students with learning disabilities. We are located in a quiet neighbourhood in the west end of Ottawa, close to a beautiful park. This allows our students to receive plenty of fresh air and exercise everyday.
MindWare was founded on the belief that all children deserve to be treated with respect and kindness. When this happens you achieve amazing results. Tired of watching children with learning disabilities struggle and slip through the cracks, our teachers have developed programs that empower students. Through remediation of skills, a multisensory approach and a structured environment, students overcome many of their challenges and flourish. By definition, children with learning disabilities are of average to above average intelligence. They deserve the chance to graduate and go on to college or university. For many students in a traditional learning environment, this is a dream that never happens. MindWare has made the difference in the lives of our students. Most of our graduates re–enter the system for grade 9 at either the applied or academic level. With some accommodations they are able to achieve marks on par with their peers. MindWare’s first graduates have entered college and/or university. We are confident that their successes will continue.
