Online Learning

Inside Learning Disabilities for Families

Ongoing Enrollment - FREE! until Dec. 31st

Our online workshop was created to allow parents to access evidence-based, reliable information, strategies and support for their children in a way that is convenient for them. Hectic lifestyles make it difficult to commit to attending in-person classes and reading books or websites can leave a person feeling like they’re alone. On-line learning options provide flexibility by being open 24/7. If desired, a parent can revisit the same content multiple times. It also allows parents the ability to access information when it’s convenient for them. 

Having a child diagnosed with a Learning Disability can be overwhelming and isolating. This 10-module online course has been designed to increase your knowledge and understanding of Learning Disabilities; the impact Learning Disabilities can have on a child’s academics, behaviour, and well-being; and the evidence-based strategies and tools to build your knowledge, skills and abilities to increase your child’s success.

Topics covered:

  • Introduction to Learning Disabilities
  • Examination of Specific Learning Disabilities
  • The relationship between Learning Disabilities and executive functioning
  • The impact that Learning Disabilities can have on social/emotional functioning
  • Setting students up for success (e.g., transitions, self-advocacy, and collaboration)
