In 2010 Dr. Lynn McQuarrie and colleagues at the University of Alberta completed a report for Alberta Education’s Intervention Supports for Special Education Students Project. This University of Alberta report on exemplary schools identified Foothills Academy as a very successful model for delivering educational programming to students with Learning Disabilities. This research project identified 6 key areas identified by students, parents, and/or staff as contributing to the success of Foothills Academy: relationships with school staff; supporting students with LD; learning resources; teaching and assessment strategies; supporting learning at home; and school culture and atmosphere.
In 2008 Foothills Academy Society hosted World Summit on Learning Disabilities in Lake Louise, Alberta, Canada. International experts in the field of medicine, psychology, education, justice, neurological and genetic research, government, law, advocacy, and employment together with parents and individuals with Learning Disabilities attended the summit. These representatives, from diverse countries and cultures, identified consensus about the critical issues and actions necessary to maximize the human potential of individuals affected by Learning Disabilities. As a result of this gathering, a white paper entitled A Call to Action was produced.
