Learning Disabilities Month

October is more than just Thanksgiving and Halloween. Sure, it’s fun to eat turkey with all of the trimmings and then try and stuff ourselves into a costume two weeks later. But, October means much more to us. It marks Learning Disabilities Awareness Month. Every October, the Learning Disabilities Association of Nova Scotia, together with other LDA’s across Canada host events and raise awareness about Learning Disabilities.

Below are some of the things we’re working on for LD month. Keep your eyes on this page for updated information.

All Month Long

The purpose of Hot Topics is to engage members and stakeholders and empower them with facts about different types of Learning Disabilities.
