Did you know that two to three children in a typical inclusive classroom have been diagnosed with a Learning Disability?

Understanding Learning Disabilities (LD)  and Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is so much more than a list of strategies. These courses will explore current research of the brain-based underpinnings and cognitive functioning of LD and ADHD to increase your understanding of the WHY and the HOW of strategies to increase student success With a solid understanding of these two factors, strategies are more successful. Reduce teacher burn-out by building your understanding and increase student success by increasing your capacity to support students with LD and ADHD. With one in ten students having LD or ADHD, these online courses can benefit all educators.

Our self-directed online Professional Development courses take you inside the world of Learning Disabilities and ADHD at school: from facts and diagnosis to co-occurring conditions and strategies for the student and the classroom. They have been designed for educators to increase your understanding and familiarity of LD and ADHD, the impact they can have on academics, behaviour, and well-being; and the evidence-based strategies and tools to increase student success and your success as a professional.

Do you have the tools to help these struggling students? If not, you’re not alone. Many teachers are unaware of what this diagnosis means and how it can impact students academically and emotionally and affect the classroom as a whole. The good news is that what works for students with LD and ADHD can benefit ALL students!

I think this course should be mandatory for all Education students and teachers. It provides a very in-depth understanding of LDs and practical applications for strategies to implement regardless of diagnoses with any student. — Online course participant
