 This symposium will be held at the Wu Conference Centre on the University of New Brunswick Fredericton Campus on Friday April 22nd. This event is organized by the Learning Disabilities Associaiton of New Brunswick as a partner of the Atlantic Learning Disabilities Executive Network (ALDEN) which is an organization of the 4 Atlantic Canadian Provincial Learning Disabilities Associations. ALDEN was created in order to share information and best practices throughout the 4 provinces. This is the 3rd Symposium and follows a very successful 2014 Symposium hosted by the Learning Disabilities Association of Newfoundland and Labrador. Our aim is to bring together educators, parents and those who work with persons with Learning Disabilities; to share our acquired knowledge and to learn from what other provinces are doing, to help those with learning disabilities reach their full potential.

The Atlantic Symposium on Learning Disabilities will bring together key participants consisting of government stakeholders, community leaders, professors, educators, LD specialists and partner organizations. Specialty workshops will be hosted throughout the day on topics that include Literacy Intervention, Cognitive Strategies in the Classroom and much more. Click Here to view the program for this full day of learning and focused discussion on Literacy, Learning Disabilities and Cognitive Strategies.
