October is Learning Disabilities Awareness Month

Throughout October the Learning Disabilities Associations of York Region will be celebrating LD Awareness month. LDA-YR will be raising awareness and reducing stigma to allow individuals to get the supports they need to reach their potential.

“People too often define the life of someone living with Learning Disabilities by the areas where they need support such as math, reading, writing or organizational skills. Too often other negative labels follow Dumb, Lazy or Disruptive. Nothing could be further from the truth” says: Lawrence Barns President and CEO of LDA-Ontario “The goal of this campaign is for people to see the areas of strength and abilities which often get overlooked.”
