L.I.F.E. Training

Learning disabilities (LD) and ADHD are hidden disabilities that affect many individuals who usually have average or above average intelligence, but they are not able to achieve their potential.

 

L.I.F.E. (Learning Is For Everyone) Training provides the tools and understanding for literacy practitioners to help support a learner’s unique challenges and needs.

A learning disability means having difficulties in one or more of the basic learning processes involved in understanding or using language, speaking or writing. This can lead to challenges in listening, thinking, speaking, reading, writing, spelling, or doing mathematical calculations.

Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neurobiological disorder. It interferes with a person’s ability to regulate activity level (hyperactivity), inhibits behaviour (impulsivity) and pay attention to the task at hand (inattention).

For many, undetected learning disabilities and/or ADHD can create a lifelong pattern of frustration and failure. This failure can start in school and evolving into several issues such as school dropout, low self-esteem, substance abuse, unemployment, depression, trouble with the law, and the list goes on.

As an adult foundational learning practitioner, you need to understand, recognize, and support these learners’ unique learning challenges and needs. L.I.F.E. Training will provide you with the tools to help support these learners.

“The modules were a great resource that were succinct in its messages. I appreciated the exploration of the myths and breaking those down. And I appreciated the many strategies that can (and already have) been implemented in my practice.”

If you have ADHD, you might want to consider ADHD Coaching or our Adult Group.

L.I.F.E. Training is designed explicitly for literacy workers. While it provides excellent information about ADHD and Learning Disabilities, it is not meant to help you manage and understand your ADHD or Learning Disability.
