Helping Canadians with learning disabilities live their full potential

We need your support !

Make a difference in the journey of children and adults with learning disabilities! In supporting the Learning Disabilities Association of Canada (LDAC), you are helping to achieve an important goal: allowing people with learning disabilities to no longer be stigmatized; where they can thrive, reach their potential and be recognized as fully contributing members of society.

Do you know what learning disabilities (LDs) are?

They are a group of challenges that make it harder for some people to learn and use information. LDs are not related to intelligence, but can interfere with academic, social, and emotional development. LDs can affect one or more areas of learning, such as reading, writing, math, or reasoning.Some common signs of LDs are:

• Difficulty with reading, spelling, or writing

• Difficulty with math concepts or calculations

• Difficulty with memory, organization, or planning

• Difficulty with attention, focus, or self-regulation

• Difficulty with social skills or communication

• LDs are lifelong and can vary in severity and impact. However, with appropriate identification, intervention, and support, people with LDs can achieve their full potential and lead successful lives.
