Robbie’s Memorial Fund

Robert David Shuttleworth (1995 – 2010)

Robbie Shuttleworth was the younger son of Valerie and Paul Shuttleworth and beloved brother of Gordon. Although Robbie left us way too early, he left behind him a legacy that will live for years to come. Robbie was a true champion for learning disabled children and youth everywhere. He was never afraid or ashamed to say that he had a learning disability. On the contrary, this exceptional young man, wise beyond his years, taught by example to his peers that the best approach to learning was to advocate for yourself. He made it known what he needed. His parents, teachers and friends knew when he struggled and they were always there to help pave a smoother road.

As Robbie grew older, he learned to advocate for himself and in his final year at school, he had his most successful one! Robbie was proud of who he was and all that it encompassed. He wanted every child and youth with a learning disability to have a chance to be successful. He came out to the chapter functions, helped with renovation projects and totally supported the cause! He lead by example. And we miss his passion and commitment.

On Robbie´s behalf, the agency has started a Memorial Fund in his name that will keep his legacy alive. These monies were generously donated by individuals touched by Robbie´s story. The Shuttleworth Family would like to see every child have a chance at success and therefore have designated the monies to go toward funding assessments. If your child/youth is in need of an assessment, please tell us your story in a one page letter and submit along with the application form to our agency address at 121 Willowdale Ave. Suite 100, Toronto, Ontario M2N 6A3 or by email to: admin@ldatd.on.ca .

Applications are reviewed quarterly and you will be notified thereafter of the Board decision.

Good luck with your application!
