About this Event

Background

Our conference features a morning keynote address, followed by 3 sessions of breakout presentations with 4 presentations to choose from. Along with a day filled with important information sharing, participants will have a great opportunity to network with like-minded individuals to build professional development and expand their knowledge on supporting students with Learning Disabilities and/or ADHD.

Keynote Speaker: DJ Cunningham

Half of the challenge with finding success with any disability is managing self-esteem. If one can find the tools to increase and keep their self-esteem intact, resiliency and creating success is an option. DJ Cunningham, who is the owner of LEARNstyle Ltd., Ontario's largest student services software and training company, lives with both ADHD and a Learning Disability. DJ will speak to his experiences in creating a holistic tool kit of esteem creating strategies that build resilience; including everything from fitness, to technology, to small victories. These tools can benefit students with Learning Disabilities but can also be used with students of all abilities.
