The Lifelong Impact of Learning Disabilities

Course #98.1

Goals

• To better understand the impact of these disabilities in adulthood;
• To find ways to deal with their significance both in the school setting and the work force;
• To acknowledge the challenges faced by trainers, professionals, teachers and employers, as well as to provide them with some useful strategies.

Learning disabilities and the disorders that are sometimes associated with them (e.g. ADHD, anxiety), can present challenges both at school and at work. “Many adults (some of whom are unaware of their LDs) have developed ways to cope with their difficulties and are able to lead successful lives. LDs shouldn’t hinder a person from attaining goals. Regardless of the situation, understanding the specific challenges and learning strategies to deal with LDs directly at every stage can alleviate a lot of frustration and make successful living much easier.” (LDAC, retrieved from website February 16th, 2018). 

Trainers, teachers, professionals and employers have a critical role to play throughout an individual’s lifespan. This webinar has been developed to provide participants with a more in depth understanding of adults with learning disabilities, the issues that arise and the ways to address them in a constructive manner.

Together we will discover ways to reduce barriers and make school and work environments more inclusive for those individuals with learning disabilities.
