Who we are
Each and every day, Canadians with learning disabilities (LDs) face the challenge of learning and processing information with courage and determination. What they don't need is the added challenge of having to explain LDs to classmates, colleagues and employers.The Learning Disabilities Association of Ottawa-Carleton (LDAO-C) is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting increased awareness and respect for persons with learning disabilities. As an association, we engage the community and professional groups to assist in their understanding of LDs and ADHD.
