DJ's presentation is centred on his personal life story and the lifelong impacts that his learning disability has had on him, also the vital role that educators, technology and differentiated learning have played. Furthermore, DJ's high level of acumen with SEA training and numerous products, the full suite of Google products and his own company's LEARNstyle technology/education products ensure a full picture presentation of the role of education and technology currently and in the future.

Speaker: D.J. Cunningham's passion and expertise grows out of a deep personal understanding of learning disabilities. DJ Cunningham, CEO has a significant learning disability. In school he faced all the issues of those with hidden disabilities: feelings of inadequacy and stupidity, concealment, embarrassment, ridicule, teasing, being viewed as lazy or defiant. He used common coping mechanisms such as becoming invisible; acting out; and at times and with growing sophistication, “playing the LD card.” At Trent University, he discovered assistive technologies and a door to independence and academic success opened. DJ has been a user of Assistive Technologies for the past 10 years and has trained hundreds of students and led numerous training workshops.
