October is Learning Disabilities Awareness Month

Learning Disabilities Awareness Month is recognized every year in October. The Learning Disabilities Associations of Ontario is raising awareness to reduce stigma in order to allow people of all ages to get the services and supports they need to reach their potential.


Learning Disabilities (LDs) affect one or more of the ways that a person takes in, stores, or uses information. It has been reported that 1 in 10 people in Ontario are impacted by LDs. As with most disorders their effects are different from person to person so it is important to take the time to get to know a person's learning profile in order to match effective strategies to their areas of need. 


For more information about LDs, along with resources and upcoming events, visit the Learning Disabilities Association of Ontario website. We will be posting additional information on social media throughout the month.
