Experience and Expertise Shared Around the Table
The Learning Disabilities & ADHD Network has been meeting and collaborating since the 1980’s, when it was originally known as the LD Stakeholders Group. Member organizations of this long-standing Network regularly present at conferences and provide workshops and courses on the topics of Learning Disabilities, ADHD, and related topics. We undertake research projects in the field, collaborate with each other on various initiatives, and jointly develop content for the Network. Most importantly, we have shared our professional, personal, and family experiences about Learning Disabilities & ADHD – and we have learned tremendously from each other. Learn more under What We Do.
In 2018, Calgary Region LD & ADHD Network was proud to be nominated for a Spirits of Gold “Together We Can” award through Calgary & Area United Way for the collaborative nature of our initiative.
We are people whose lives have been touched by Learning Disabilities & ADHD, and whose life’s work has been to support individuals who struggle with learning and attention challenges.
