Learning Disabilities Association of Canada (LDAC) Conference – submitted by Ralph Chou and Amy Gorecki

Logo for LDAO conference

This conference will be a first of its kind – a truly NATIONAL conference bringing experts from across Canada to tackle issues of:

  • Literacy
  • Numeracy; and
  • Social Emotional Learning for Students with Specific Learning Disorders

We determined that the best course of action we could take would be to invite teachers from across Canada to learn from the leading experts and researchers in these fields. And that’s what we’ve done!


Here’s the link to our conference


Now – we love to educate people on what’s being researched and found works in education for those with LD all over with the hopes that they can learn something and grow in their teaching and professional experience as a result.

A bunch of people have asked me about what’s happening with the association and our recent “silence”. I know there are others who care deeply about making Canada a better place for kids with LD that would love to make more of a difference. Teachers especially care but think that if they understood what’s been working for others and had the training to help them maximize their success, they too could make a real difference in these troubling times.

Well, we just created our biggest public-facing resource to date. It’s the LDAC 2021 National Conference called “Closing the COVID Gap” AND it is set for May 28th!
